Silver dressings by all Sub-ICB Locations

Why it matters: NICE states : There is at present no robust clinical- or cost-effectiveness evidence to support the use of antimicrobial dressings (for example, silver, iodine or honey) over non-medicated dressings for preventing or treating chronic wounds. Indiscriminate use should be discouraged because of concerns over bacterial resistance and toxicity.
