n November 2011, the Wounds UK Harrogate conference hosted the inaugural Wounds UK debate, which focused on the subject of dressings and how exactly clinicians are supposed to make the right choices for patients, especially when confronted with the plethora of new dressings and techniques available to today’s wound care specialist.

The debate aimed to find some answers to questions around what criteria to use when deciding on the suitability of particular dressing products. For example, does clinical need override cost, or should clinicians be guided purely by what is listed on the hospital formulary? The aim was to use an expert panel, a little like the popular TV show, to find the ‘X Factor’ of dressing choice.
