We are UK distributors of the highest quality medical devices sourced from leading manufacturers throughout the world and are renowned for supplying innovative and cost-effective medical products to the NHS. We understand the value of education which is why we are excited to support Wound Care People across their platforms, including Journal of Community Nursing (JCN) and Wound Care Today (WCT).


This year we are proud to be partnering up with Wound Care Today on the wound pain module.

Pain related to wound management can occur in many different forms and in chronic wounds has been considered a neglected area1. It is often underestimated and poorly managed, with nurses focusing on the wound itself rather than the whole person2,3.

We are committed to working alongside clinicians and industry publishers to provide education and training. For more information about our educational offering and how we can support your training requirements, visit: www.hrhealthcare.co.uk/education
