The New Zealand Wound Care Society

We are a New Zealand based group of dedicated health care professionals, from a range of disciplines, who share a common interest in wound management. We are passionate about improving wound healing and we collaborate with organisations world-wide. Our members voluntarily share experiences, expertise, knowledge, and network with other members around Aotearoa.

The team’s work was acknowledged as a finalist at the NZ Primary Health Care awards in 2021 for it's inaugural 2020 Wound Awareness Week, promoting skin tear prevention and management in New Zealand.


We are a registered charity with Charities Services and have Donee status with the Inland Revenue.
