The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust is taking part in and supporting ‘International Stop Pressure Ulcer Day’ on Friday 16th November.

As part of the campaign, the public, hospital staff and local healthcare professionals are being invited to attend a free presentation event by Judy Harker, the Pennine Acute Trust’s Tissue Viability Nurse Consultant, on Friday 16 Nov 11am -12 pm at the Education Centre at The Royal Oldham Hospital.

Pressure ulcers (or bed sores as they are more commonly known) occur when the skin and the tissue beneath it becomes damaged, typically occurring among patients who cannot move or have lost sensation. Prolonged periods of immobility put pressure on the skin, soft tissue, or bone, causing tissue damage to develop.

To book your place on the event, contact Angela Greenwood on 01706 517302 or email
