Tissue Viability

Oxford University Hospitals has a dedicated inpatient Tissue Viability Team covering all four hospital sites (John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and Horton General Hospital).

The Tissue Viability Team is committed to providing support, training and education to both staff and the public about maintaining and promoting skin integrity.

If during your hospital stay you have a wound that is failing to heal, or that is of concern to the staff looking after you, you may be referred to the Tissue Viability Team for specialist advice.

The nurses in the Tissue Viability Team can provide specialist advice on all types of wounds, including pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, surgical wounds or traumatic wounds.

The Tissue Viability Team works closely with the community healthcare teams to ensure once you are discharged home you receive the appropriate care and input to maintain skin integrity and promote wound healing.
