Patients with Leg Ulcers and their Carers needed for Leg Ulcer research project

by – June 16, 2014

The Leg Ulcer charity is performing a research study, asking patients with leg ulcers or those who care for them, to answer an online questionnaire. For this study, we are not including paid health care professionals – just friends, family or volunteers who provide care to patients with leg ulcers without being paid to do so.

Patients with Leg Ulcers and their carers needed to help with Leg Ulcer Research

If you are/know someone who:

  • Has a leg ulcer
  • Cares for someone with a leg ulcer without being paid for it

Then please, either follow this link and answer the online questionnaire, or send the link to the relevant person.

The Leg Ulcer Charity is a UK based charity which aims to help patients find a permanent cure for their leg ulcers. Over 60% of people with leg ulcers could be cured, if only patients were given the chance to have a duplex ultrasound scan and local anaesthetic laser vein surgery. Support stockings or bandages do not cure leg ulcers – they only provide temporary healing before the ulcers return again in the future.

For more information about Leg Ulcers and how to find a cure, please see: www.legulcercharity.org

We need donations to be able to achieve our aim – to stop needless suffering in those patients with leg ulcers who might be curable with simple tests and local anaesthetic treatments.
Please forward our website to everyone you know – why not make The Leg Ulcer Charity your charity of choice next time you are involved in any fund-raising?

We do carry information about leg ulcer treatment on this website. For more information on the work of the charity, you are welcome to contact them via: info@legulcercharity.org
