Like many sectors, tissue viability services have been affected by and had to learn lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has had an impact on service delivery and patient communication, and there has been some debate over whether this will permanently change the ways in which care is delivered. A group of specialist nurses and academics working in wound care met online via Zoom on 15th June 2021 to discuss how care has evolved since the start of the pandemic, and what this might look like as we move forward. This builds on a previous discussion that took place one year earlier (18th June 2020), in which a similar group discussed the challenges of delivering care at the height of the pandemic, which was published in Wounds UK in September 2020 (Fletcher et al, 2020).
