Leg Clubs should be available in every Town. Patients with leg ulcers have a miserable time and get better faster when able to meet other patients with similar problems. A cup of coffee and a chat make all the difference. You can keep coming to Leg Club even when your leg is healed. My friend lives in Wales and goes to a Leg Club. Well done Bradford on Avon.
