We provide high quality healthcare services primarily to the residents of East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen, which have a combined population in the region of 530,000.
The East Lancashire Treatment Room Service provides face to face and a direct point of access for patients requiring specific treatments.
The treatments provided are:
Appointments or “Open Access urgent dressing clinics” - The Treatment room service offers a combination of appointments and limited “Open Access”, urgent dressing sessions for newly discharged patients when an appointment is not available. It is important that appointments are attended on time. The “ open access” service is available at a number of locations and can be very busy sessions with a waiting time. Ear syringing and Leg Ulcer Management is by appointment only.
Dressings – Most of the dressings used in the Treatment room are provided by the service. Occasionally there may be a specialist dressing requiring a prescription from your Doctor. The Treatment Room Nurse will assess the wound and apply an appropriate dressing as required.
Ear irrigation for wax removal – Ear care is provided on different days in various centres. Information can be obtained from the Treatment Room for self-care of ears and wax removal and appointments made accordingly. Service users with hearing devices should make an appointment for ear irrigation (syringing).
Leg ulcer treatment – The Treatment Room Nurses are specialised in the diagnosis and treatment of venous leg ulceration.
