Treatment centre toasts milestone
A celebration event was held to mark the one year-anniversary of a successful treatment service at Ysbyty Penrhos Stanley. The Treatment Room Unit (TRU) is a primary care initiative that works in conjunction with GP surgeries to offer patients a larger range of facilities in their local community areas.
The service was launched in May 2017 and in the last year has performed more than 4,000 treatments for patients from the Anglesey area. The TRU provides all types of wound care ranging from basic dressing changes, leg ulcers, compression bandaging, packing and removal of clips and sutures.
The TRU is open between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday at Ysbyty Penrhos Stanley, through appointments only.
