The practice nurse will attend to any wound requiring dressing. Those students requiring dressings may attend the University Nursing Service if this is more convenient.
If you have a wound requiring suturing you will normally be referred to Kent and Canterbury Hospital Minor Injururies Unit.
Sutures or clips generally should remain in place for 5-10 days depending on the type and position of the wound. Make an appointment with the Practice Nurse for wound assessment and/or removal of sutures.
