Brenda King MBE

Nurse Consultant, Tissue Viability, Wound Care Connections

After qualifying Brenda worked as a staff nurse in the Sheffield hospitals including time at Weston Park Oncology hospitals prior to developing a career in community as a District Nurse. It was here that she developed a passion for wound healing and was appointed to one of the first community Tissue Viability Nurse roles in the country in 1992.

Brenda now has a wealth of experience in Tissue Viability and became Nurse Consultant in 2008; during her time working in tissue viability she has been instrumental in developing local wound care services including leg ulcer prevention and management and pressure ulcer prevention and management. The local leg ulcer services encompassed the development of nurse led clinics, educational programmes both for community staff and the curriculum development and delivery of the former ENB N18 course at the Sheffield University.
