Wounds UK 2022: what can you expect?

Many of you will be reading this issue of the journal at the annual Wounds UK conference in Harrogate. This thought prompted me to refer back to the conference issue of the journal for November 2012 to reflect on what was being discussed at the time. In their Editorial, Jacqui Fletcher and Karen Ousey highlighted the “abundance of media stories surrounding poor practice in healthcare, including patients left on trolleys for long periods of time, patients not receiving adequate nutrition and a general lack of compassion for those in our care” (Fletcher and Ousey 2012). It struck me that 10 years on we are still discussing these issues, and in fact, the NHS seems to be in yet more crisis (Jeffries, 2022), which of course has been made worse as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference programme reflects some of the challenges being faced by those of us working in wound care with opportunities to discuss where we are now and what impact local and national initiatives have had or are having.
