Post Injury Support
The long term consequences for someone who has suffered a burn injury can potentially be debilitating physically, psychologically and socially and this is what drives the research at the Fiona Wood Foundation.
Thankfully, there are many organisations both locally and globally who are dedicated to helping both patients and families deal with particular issues should they arise
There is a risk of psychological trauma following burn injury, and there are a range of organisations dedicated to assisting people who are finding life challenging
Some patients experience self-esteem issues associated with scarring. The UK-based charity Changing Faces has many helpful resources to assist with these issues.
