Nurses in the Tissue Viability team came to work  on Wednesday 5 June 2019 wearing striped socks and stockings in support of Legs Matter Week.

Legs Matter is an organisation which raises awareness about the importance of legs, the need to be vigilant and offers useful information on leg conditions.

Ana Nunes, Specialist Practitioner, said: "One of the reasons we are supporting this event is because leg diseases have a massive impact on people's lives.

"The aim of the week is to help people recognise and spot signs of leg disease enabling them to seek treatment sooner."

Albert Spitilli, also a Specialist Practitioner within the team, added: "Our legs and feet do a lot for us, but often they don't get the attention they deserve - by raising awareness of Legs Matter we can help change that!"

More information on the week can be found at legsmatter.org
