This service offers specialist outreach nursing support and treatment to adults and children living with the rare skin condition epidermolysis bullosa (EB).
Currently, there are two services provided from Glasgow at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Royal Hospital for Children. Specialist nurses provide services including wound care management and symptom control to help reduce the debilitating symptoms and complications of this painful condition.
The services are provided in the clinics as well as outreach community support.
