The cost of wound care in the UK is between £5.1 and £4.5 billion a year and with an estimated 2.2 million wounds managed in the NHS annually¹. Latest paper on the cost effectiveness of Accel-Heal shows that its use for the treatment of Venous Leg Ulcers (VLUs) affords the NHS a 34% reduction in the requirement for nursing visits, and a 26% reduction in the number of dressings used. This results in an overall cost saving of 11%. If applied across the board for the treatment of complex wounds in the UK Accel-Heal potentially offers the NHS an annual saving of £495 million.
