We are a specialist nurse-led team, delivering bespoke care and treatment to patients who are diagnosed with cancer and non-cancer related lymphoedema, and the possible problems this condition may hold for you as an individual.
We are a compassionate, friendly, approachable team of nurses, dedicated to providing the best possible care for our patients. Throughout your treatment, we will always be mindful of your individual needs, and treat you with the utmost respect at all times.
We undertake holistic assessments which allow an individual management programme of care to be implemented. This includes skin care, massage, exercise and compression garments. Other treatments include kinesio taping, manual lymphatic drainage and a specialist course of multi-layer lymphoedema bandaging.
