The management of wounds has improved since the multidisciplinary approach came to the fore. Multiple specialities have joined together to improve patient care and deal with the problems that certain wounds create. The approach to managing a specific wound needs to take certain aspects into consideration, such as knowledge, skills, resources as well as any reservations that the patients might have pertaining to the treatment plan. This is a team effort, which can be more adequately provided in the setting of a dedicated Wound Care Clinic. To create an innovative, well functioning and well funded wound care clinic takes time, dedication, perseverance and hard work. This can be seen in the reflections written by Professor Keith Harding published in this issue.
