McIndoe Burns Support Group
» Welcome to our homepage
We are a Registered Charity Number 291047
The name ‘McIndoe Burns Support Group’ was chosen as a tribute to Sir Archibald McIndoe, who is famous for his pioneering work in plastic surgery during the Second World War and after whom the Burns Centre at the Queen Victoria Hospital (QVH) is named. He was also known for his personal concern for the burns patient’s individual needs, and the Group continues this support.
The Group was founded in 1983 by specially trained nurses and medical staff, along with people who had been personally involved with the trauma of a burn or a scald injury.
The primary aim of the Group is to provide friendship, reassurance and support at a time when it is needed. This may be soon after admission to hospital, during the stay, or much later when the initial upset has lessened – it may be all of these. The Group works in conjunction with the professional medical staff at the Burns Centre, many of whom are also voluntary members of the Group. There is always someone available to chat to if something is worrying you.
