STOP the Pressure!

On Thursday 19th November 2020 we have one goal worldwide: STOP PRESSURE ULCERS

STOP Pressure Ulcer Day is a global annual event in which industry, healthcare professionals, the public and media come together to help raise awareness of pressure ulcers – something many people are touched by every year. The aim of this annual event, which now takes place in countries all over the world, is to increase public knowledge in a bid to prevent pressure ulcers from forming and affecting so many people each year.


The Tissue Viability Society, NHS England and NHS Improvement, along with industry and media partners would like to support Healthcare Professionals to take part in the International Stop Pressure Ulcer Campaign.

We have started to collate some information and materials within our Online Resource Centre, to help you plan your event. Click the links to find out more…
