This article was originally published in Clinica
Savings of over £250,000 ($400,000) in material costs alone could be made in wound care expenditure in Wales by changing prescribing patterns, claims a report in the Journal of Wound Care (November). A cost analysis of prescriptions (for the period July 1993 - June 1994) for support bandages, surgical tapes, paste bandages, tubular bandages and stockinettes showed that expenditure in Wales on these wound management products totalled £5.56 million (estimated at about 10% of overall UK expenditure).
