    Effective communication to ensure maintenance of a seamless quality
    service for patients being transferred to the community from the acute
    sector with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is essential. This
    paper reports the findings of a focus group convened to explore the
    decision making process; controversy or conflict surrounding the decisionmaking
    process; perceived barriers to seamless discharge and potential
    benefits of developing a UK standardized NPWT discharge documentation.
    A proposed algorithm is presented as a template for practitioners to
    use when discharging patients to the community to enhance timely and
    effective transfer.
