Stop the pressure


The Stop the Pressure website is an improvement resource for health professionals and patients to access current information for the benefit of all at risk of pressure ulcers.

The ‘Stop the Pressure’ campaign was originally launched by NHS Midlands and East as part of their ambition to make life better for patients. The campaign is now managed by NHS Improvement under the leadership of Dr Ruth May, Executive Director of Nursing and forms part of a key ambition to support the improvement of standards of safe care.
