Specialist wound care to help rebuild the lives of those injured in conflict


Case studies


The best way to learn about our work and why it is so important is to read case studies of the veterans we have worked with. In the three poster presentations below you will find case studies which show the impact of traumatic wounds and the support which Woundcare4Heroes can provide.

A patient’s perspective on his military and civil post-trauma wound care treatment
