Tissue Viability Service


The Livewell Southwest tissue viability service provides specialist evidence-based advice to all health care professionals, patients, families and carers surrounding the management of wounds that are complex in nature and failing to respond to treatment.

All people are eligible for referral to our service, if registered with a GP in the Western CCG locality (Plymouth, South Hams and West Devon) and provided they meet the referral criteria.

Tissue viability visits are conducted in a variety of care settings, including: independent clinics; community hospitals; care homes; GP surgeries and people’s own homes.

The aim of the service is to help healthcare professionals and individuals to better manage the treatment of complex wounds, and aid recovery.
