Abstract A postal survey in two health board areas in Scotland, encompassing a population of about one million, identified 1477 patients with chronic ulcers of the leg. Women outnumbered men by a ratio of 2.8:1. The median age of the women was 74 and of the men 67. Seventy two (5\%) were hospital inpatients, 174 (12\%) were managed jointly by the primary care team and outpatient departments, and 1201 (83\%) were managed entirely in the community. Efforts to improve the management of chronic ulcers of the leg should focus on primary health care.
