Simple Wound Care pilot

Most cuts and grazes can be treated at home and will start to heal in a few days. But some wounds may need to be treated by a medical professional if there’s a risk of infection, if the injury is serious, or if you have recently had an operation.

Simple wound care services are available across North East London to support patients with managing wounds such as skin ulcers, first degree superficial burns, post-surgical sutures, clips removal and routine dressings. 

From 1 October 2022, your local NHS will be trialling a new service in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge to improve the experience for patients while providing high quality support in local communities. 

The new pilot will:

  • Be available to all patients over the age of 16 who are registered with a GP in Barking & Dagenham, Havering or Redbridge who require simple would care
  • Allow patients to book and cancel appointments online or via telephone at a time convenient for them including mornings, afternoons and at weekends.
  • Provide appointments seven days a week, Monday to Friday from 8am-6.30pm and on Saturday and Sunday between 9am-5pm.
  • Provide appointments at a number of sites across the three boroughs
  • Enable us to gather feedback throughout the life of the pilot which we can be used to continuously improve the service.
