Legs Matter Week 2021

Did you know that non-healing wounds of the leg and foot are one of the UK’s biggest health challenges?

Despite this, conditions of the leg and foot do not currently receive the care or attention they urgently need.

This October, the Legs Matter campaign is changing that with a week packed with virtual events designed to get everyone talking about legs and feet again.

They’ve got sessions on everything from why compression matters to how to pick footwear that works, with expert guests from the worlds of vascular surgery, yoga and more.

Every day, thousands of people’s quality of life is devastated by the lack of awareness, prompt diagnosis and correct treatment of lower leg and foot conditions.

This can and must change.
