The feedback form is also available to download from the webpage.

If you would like to give your views on the scope, please:

  • email the feedback form to pressureulcers.hcis@nhs.net, or
  • post the feedback form to Karen Grant, Standards and Indicators Team, Healthcare Improvement Scotland, Delta House, 50 West Nile Street, Glasgow G1 2NP

Please note that the deadline for receiving comments is Friday 26 June 2016.

The feedback received will be presented to the pressure ulcers standards project group at their first meeting in August and this feedback will help to shape the first draft of the standards. The draft standards will be due for publication around February 2016.

If you would like your contact details to be added to their distribution list in order to receive copies of the draft and final standards next year, please email shonagh.ramsey@nhs.net
