How do I get referred to clinic?

We undertake clinics at the Royal Gwent Hospital (Diabetic Foot Clinic) and St Woolos Hospital on Mondays. Tuesday's clinic is at Cardiff Royal Infirmary (CRI), and the Complex Wound Clinic is at UHW on Wednesday.

The types of wounds referred include:
  • Category 3 and 4 pressure ulcers
  • Leg ulcers where standard treatment has failed to heal these wounds within 8 – 12 weeks
  • Acute wounds e.g. Hidradenitis Suppurativa, Pilonidal Sinus, Dehisced abdominal wounds
  • Non-healing or deteriorating surgical wounds
  • Wounds where a malignancy is suspected
  • Wounds without a definitive diagnosis
  • Malignant and fungating wounds

​Referral into these clinics should be made by your GP, or another healthcare professional (a Hospital Consultant for out of area referrals). Referral into the Cardiff clinics should include the referral form.
