B.U.G.S (Burns Unit Support Group)
B.U.G.S. is a small registered charity which supports patients and ex-patients who have been burned. The small team of volunteers who organise and staff B.U.G.S. are dedicated to providing enhanced care. In hospital we visit and befriend patients. After discharge, the support continues through friendship, encouragement and practical information for ex-patients and their families.
It is also possible to link individuals into professional help and advice. The group can recommend national as well as local organisations, if appropriate. B.U.G.S. membership is free and open to all ex-patients and their families.
B.U.G.S. was founded in May 2000 by staff trained in burn care and an ex-patient. It is based at Salisbury District Hospital Burns Unit and serves a large regional area.
