We are pleased to announce that this year’s Wounds UK Annual Conference will take place from 8–10th November with the ultimate goal to embrace the opportunity to connect, collaborate and learn in person. The sessions over the 3 days have been especially developed to have a greater emphasis on interaction and networking.

The programme will be diverse and will include updates from the National Wound Care Strategy Programme, tools for learning, patient engagement and shared care planning, and updates on the current science and terminology of healing. After the conference, you will return to your clinical settings armed with solutions to problems and campaigns for improving delivery of care.

The conference is spread over 3 days to give you the best opportunity to fit it in around your week, and we already have a taster of what you can expect on each day
