Shona MacDonald, UK and Ireland MD will be leaving Covalon from the 1st of October. We are sad to see Shona go but wish her the very best in her new role.
In the current climate we are aware that dressing change practices are under significant pressure and this has brought self-care strategies into the spotlight. Where appropriate, patients and their carers may be encouraged to change dressings and inspect their own wounds particularly during this difficult time.
As the crisis created by the coronavirus pandemic progresses, all of us at Covalon would like to show our gratitude and pledge our support to the NHS. The challenges being faced by the dedicated staff of the NHS are considerable but being met with energy and determination.
Following the recent withdrawal of Sorbsan we would like to draw your attention to CovaWound™ Alginate as a possible alternative.
CovaWound™ Alginate is made from the calcium salt of alginic acid (rich in mannuronic acid) and displays natural haemostatic properties to facilitate wound healing. Like Sorbsan, CovaWound™ Alginate is indicated for moderate to heavily exuding wounds and available as a flat pad, rope or ribbon.*
From 1st December 2019, CovaWound™ Foam and CovaWound™ Foam (Border) will no longer be available to order via the NHS Supply Chain. NHS Supply Chain operates a sourcing strategy across all contractual frameworks and following a recent initiative (the National Contract Price process (NCP)) the standard foam dressings category has restricted suppliers available from 1st December 2019.
We are delighted to announce that CovaWound™ SuperAbsorbent remains available to order via the Advanced Wound Care framework.
