VLU Best Practice -
Changing lives through clinical transformation

This interactive educational event will support you in adopting a solutions based approach to effectively manage VLUs. You will hear about how this approach has been adopted nationally to transform outcomes and have a chance to put new knowledge into practice in a virtual clinic.

You will also have the opportunity to apply for a place on the venous leg ulcer academy, an intensive and rewarding 2- day course to facilitate development of practical, clinical and personal development later on in the year.

The Holiday Inn Taunton is just off J25 of the M5. Note that there are two hotels on this junction - the event is taking place at the Holiday Inn Taunton (not the Holiday Inn Express).


PLEASE NOTE: the Holiday Inn Taunton has a parking Eye system in place - ALL visitors to the hotel MUST register their vehicles in any of the 4 machines at Reception.  Failure to do so may incur a parking fine of £100.  The onus is entirely on the driver - fines cannot be dealt with by the hotel.
