The Tissue Viability Society (TVS) is probably the world’s oldest society dedicated to all tissue viability issues. Formed in 1981 and a UK registered charity since 1996, the Society attracts members from all health care professions involved with tissue viability.

Our mission statement is “to disseminate information, promote research and increase awareness of all aspects of good clinical practice in wound prevention and management”.

Our goal is simply to provide expertise in wound management.
