The Burn Services have some capacity to provide wound care advice for minor burn injuries managed remotely. This would include cases which treating clinicians have concerns about such as whether the burn is infected, slow to heal, clinically deteriorating, challenging to dress or medically complex. Include a case history in the email and if the patient permits, photos of the wound would be beneficial.
