Leg ulceration is a common cause of suffering for patients, additionally it places a significant burden on the NHS. As the NHS continues to face times of austerity, services need to find other ways of working to reduce cost and release nursing time whilst maintaining standards of care. The implementation of a pathway for the treatment of leg ulceration, which aids diagnosis and uses compression hosiery kits as a first-line management for venous leg ulceration, can form part of the solution by ensuring patient safety, improving patient experience, releasing nursing time and increasing effectiveness of care.
