Wound Management Service
(Incorporating the Leg Ulcer Clinic)
Nurse Maude's Wound Management Service is for people who need specialist assessment of their wounds and those who have, or are at risk of developing, leg ulcers.
The service provides specialist wound care clinics where nurses can assess, manage and advise on chronic or complex wounds, or leg ulcers. They also provide care plans and follow-up programmes aimed at preventing wounds, including compression hosiery for leg ulcers.
Clients are referred by their GP, Practice Nurse, District Nurse, hospital or specialist, or may contact the Wound Management Service themselves.
The Wound Management Service will advise if charges will be covered by ACC or the Canterbury District Health Board, or if they need to be paid by the client.
The service also provides consultation and advice on wound management to GP's, community and practice nurses, rest homes and private hospitals.
8.30am - 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, 35 Mansfield Avenue, Christchurch. Clinics are also held at 49 Blackett St, Rangiora.
