About the Author

Val Edwards-Jones is Emeritus Professor of Medical Microbiology in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Manchester Metropolitan University and Clinical Director at MelBec Microbiology Ltd, Lancashire, an independent microbiology company. A forty year career in Microbiology, she has nineteen years in the NHS and twenty one as an academic researcher. Her research interests are wound infection, toxic shock syndrome, alternative treatment strategies and rapid diagnosis of infection using mass spectrometry. She is consultant Microbiologist for the Channel TV show Embarrassing Bodies.


This is a very useful and timely book, which has achieved its goals very well throughout. Because of its format - small chapters and clear, practical contents - it is accessible also to those for whom English is not the first language. I would recommend it for all professionals involved in wound care in any care setting as a resource for clinical and scientific information for best practice.
