P_CS_21 Supply of Wound Management Products
Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the direct supply of wound management products. The purpose of this standard operating procedure is to implement a co-ordinated and standardised approach to the operational and clinical management of directly supplied wound management products within Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS). This SOP should be known, understood and followed by all practitioners and staff working within LCHS who operate this system of supply. This SOP offers best practice advice and guidance to ensure that wound management products are handled safely and securely within all community nursing bases, this includes ordering, stock management and stock allocation. This SOP supports direct ordering of wound management products via an on line ordering system called FORMEO. This is an alternative method of ordering and supply via North West Ostomy Company (NWOS) replacing the more traditional FP10 route.
