A north-east health board has launched a campaign to reduce ulcer damage in hospital patients.
NHS Grampian started the Check-Protect-Refer initiative, which is also known as CPR for feet.
The basis of the campaign is to reduce pressure-ulcer damage to “at risk” feet.
Guidance issued by the health board includes checking patients’ feet for signs of risk and pressure damage, protecting at-risk feet with appropriate pressure-relieving equipment and referring the patients onwards for advice and support wherever required.
An information stand, which has leaflets and posters designed to provide people with more advice and support, has been installed at the community corner, near the rotunda in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
The display, with details about the campaign, will remain in place until Friday.
It gives advice such as who is at risk of developing a foot ulcer, such as frail or elderly people and the visually impaired, among others.
It also provides visual diagrams showing how best to check feet to ensure that ulcers do not develop.
Any staff members who have questions about the campaign can visit the stand for more information.
