The National Wound Care Strategy Programme (NWCSP) has been allocated funding of £600,000 for 2023/24. The NWCSP is currently testing a business case for improving leg and foot ulcer care through seven regional implementation sites, which are funded for two years from 2021/22, with final site reports expected by the end of 2023 early 2024. An interim evaluation of the first four implementation sites was positive. The last of the initial seven implementation sites will complete in December 2023 and a final evaluation report will be published very soon after.
