Medway Community Healthcare (MCH) provides a wide range of high quality community health services for Medway residents; from health visitors and district nurses to speech and language therapists and out of hours urgent care.
We provide wound care support to mobile patients of all ages who have a Medway GP. We accept referrals from patients, their GPs, Practice Nurses, Community Nurses, Same Day Treatment centres, A&E, Day Surgery, Minor Injury Units and other allied health professionals.
Patients with cellulitis with no wound, acute diabetic foot, arterial issues or lymphoedema should be referred to Community Nursing (Cellulitis), Diabetic Podiatry (Acute Diabetic Foot), Lymphoedema Service (Lymphoedema) and Vascular Team at MFT (Arterial Issues for Duplex Scan). Patients with leg ulcers should be referred to the community nurses for appropriate treatment in a Leg Ulcer Clinic.
Following a comprehensive assessment, we will discuss and advise on possible treatment for the patient’s condition and can arrange referral to other services if necessary.
Please note that the service does not provide emergency treatment and appointments are always necessary
