Service approach

The NDHT leg ulcer service is provided by NDHT community nursing within northern Devon. The service delivers:

  • Leg ulcer treatment at leg ulcer clinics.

Leg ulcer clinics

NDHT community nurses will provide your leg ulcer treatment at leg ulcer clinics.  At your first appointment we will do a full assessment including a Doppler ultrasound of your legs and appropriate treatment which may include dressings and support stockings or bandages.

The aim of the treatment is to work with you to heal your leg ulcer. Our service is guided by the best evidence (NICE guidance) in leg ulcer healing and our approach is to work with you in a way that supports the best outcomes for you.

In booking the first appointment we will invite you to attend one of our many leg ulcer clinics which will be held every week in the following venues:
