Centre for Conflict Wound Research

The Scar Free Foundation Centre for Conflict Wound Research is helping to advance the rehabilitation and recovery of servicemen and women wounded on the battlefield and of civilians injured in terrorist incidents. The Centre is based at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, home of the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine. It was opened in November 2019 by the Foundation's Patron Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex. The Centre's research has the full support of the Armed Forces community and the close involvement of veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan, who continue to serve by using their experiences to improve the outcomes of future conflict survivors.
