Rober is joining millions of NHS workers by taking part in this years NHS Change Day on the 11th March 2015.
The UK pressure ulcer specialist has pledged to help raise awareness of pressure ulcers and by working with hospitals to help them reduce and treat pressure ulcers on their wards.
NHS Change Day gives staff, families, organisations and charities an opportunity to come together to make a series of small changes which together can help create a big difference within the NHS.
According to data supplied by the NHS ‘Stop the Pressure’ campaign’ it is estimated that pressure ulcers increase the cost of a patient’s care bill by £4,000 and each year 700,000 patients will receive a pressure ulcer whilst in hospital.
Despite these figures research shows that 80-95% of ulcers are avoidable, so the company wants to work closely with NHS staff to offer support and training on how to prevent and treat pressure related injuries.
Mike Hutson, Chief Executive of Rober, said: ‘NHS Change Day is all about making a difference and improving the care and wellbeing of those who use NHS, which is why we wanted to get involved.’
NHS Change Day is now in its third year and last year was supported by 800,000 pledges ranging from painting hospitals differently to clinical staff introducing themselves to patients by name. This year the campaign estimates that 1.3m pledges will be made across the country.
