Vascular Wound Clinics

Wound healing is a complex process that often affects patients and also their immediate family and friends. The MercyAscot Vascular Wound Clinics aim to provide a ‘one-stop’ comprehensive wound assessment clinic for patients with lower limb and foot wounds.

Wounds treated include:

  • Diabetic
  • Arterial
  • Venous
  • Neuropathic
  • Pressure
  • Mixed etiology
  • Complex soft tissue

On presentation to the clinic, the patients' care involves the following:

  • Initial complete vascular examination to identify the underlying cause of the wound
  • Review of the major medical co-morbidities
  • Wound care assessment
  • Non-invasive lower limb arterial assessment. 

Each patient will be provided with an arterial and venous assessment, ongoing vascular interventional plan, wound care recommendations, and a community wound-care plan.

Comprehensive management plan

Depending on the findings of the initial assessment the patient may proceed to have an arterial or venous ultrasound in the same clinic visit, with a vascular surgical review following the scan.

A comprehensive management plan is then created for each patient, encompassing management of any underlying arterial and venous disease, optimisation of major medical risk factors, and wound care and/or compression therapy.

Advice is given for patients who require podiatric, orthotic, and nutrition assessment, and additional consultation may also be provided in the same visit.

A multi-disciplinary team

The integrated Vascular Wound Clinics bring together specialists from the fields of Vascular Surgery, Diabetes and General Medicine, Wound Care Nursing, Podiatry, Radiology, Sonography, and Community Nursing.

By adopting an integrated multi-disciplinary approach to wound care, the team is committed to working closely with primary care providers and community services to heal wounds, educate patients and prevent recurrence.
