    The Department of Health (DH) (2009a; b; 2010a; b) has clearly
    identi!ed the importance of maintaining and developing a quality
    service to all health and social care users. The QIPP agenda; Quality,
    Innovation, Productivity and Prevention relates well to the specialities
    of tissue viability and wound care. Integral to maintaining and
    developing quality is the ethos ‘No decision about me without me’
    promoted in Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS (DH, 2010a)
    that suggests patients should be involved in the decision-making
    process alongside practitioners. Indeed, patients will be in charge of
    making decisions about their care and will be able to choose which
    consultant-led team, general practitioner and treatment they have.
    The patients’ experience and satisfaction will be analysed through
    the use of Patient Reported Outcomes Measures (PROMs) and the
    amount of complaints received by healthcare users.
