At our clinic in January:
Spring Hill Clinic
These appointments are for patients who require treatment and are able to attend the Spring Hill Clinic. The appointment includes a full assessment and diagnosis; wound treatment; a wound management plan, and all dressings for the appointment plus dressings for the next dressing change.
High Risk Foot Appointments
Wound Innovations High Risk Foot Clinic is now open once a month. Our specialist service is for those suffering from poor circulation, poor sensation and/or foot deformity. Appointments are based at Spring Hill Clinic.
Telehealth appointments allow you and your health professional to have a comprehensive wound consultation with access to the Wound Innovations inter-disciplinary team. These appointments offer the same service by telecommunications technology, except for the wound treatment and dressings. These appointments are offered nation-wide and are ideal for patients with mobility constraints, physical disabilities, residents of aged care facilities and anyone requiring access to advice from a specialist team.
Frequently asked questions
An initial appointment can take up to two hours, subsequent appointments may be less, depending on the complexity of your wound.
During your initial appointment you will have access to the inter-disciplinary team who will perform a holistic assessment of your wound management needs. This will include a detailed questionnaire and we will also ask you “what is important to you?” so that our approach is tailored to suit your needs, your lifestyle and what you want to achieve.
Following the consultation, and with your consent, a comprehensive report will be provided to your referrer and any other health professionals involved in your care.
We will also discuss with you our recommended wound management plan including all required appointments and fees so you can make decisions regarding your future wound treatment process.
Wound treatment packages
Depending on your diagnosis, we will recommend a further course of treatment that may include one or more of the following services:
Wound management package (two to six subsequent appointments)
- High risk foot package
- Wound prevention program
- Intensive wound treatment package
- Telehealth services (see below)

Telehealth appointments are similar to standard clinic appointments. The patient attends an appointment with their health professional, and a member from Wound Innovations joins the meeting by videoconference. High resolution photos of the wound are taken and shared, progress is monitored, the patient provides feedback and recommendations are made for future care.
