National Wound Care Strategy update: from strategy development to implementation

The last 12 months have been a time of transition for the National Wound Care Strategy Programme (NWCSP) for England as we start to shift from strategy development into implementation. When I came into post in Autumn 2018, the expectation was to spend the first year developing a strategy and then the second year implementing that strategy. However, as we started to understand the extent of the challenge, it quickly became obvious that there was no way that two years would give us enough time to achieve anything meaningful and sustainable. Fortunately, NHS England and NHS Improvement listened to our arguments, and we have been given more time and resources to address the issues. We are grateful for their patience and trust in us, but it does feel good that at last we are getting some traction in the delivery of the programme.
