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.
If you are/know someone who:
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.
