Our Lymphoedema Clinic

Did you know we run a Lymphoedema Clinic for cancer and non-cancer patients?

As 4–8 March 2024 is Lymphoedema Awareness Week, we asked our Lymphoedema Practitioner Mel to share her expertise.

Here, she sheds light on the clinic’s purpose, the services offered, the specialist equipment, and what patients can expect during their sessions.

She’s also running a coffee morning on Wednesday, 6 March where you can get free, expert advice and information on breast cancer and lymphoedema.  

Lymphoedema Coffee Morning

Wednesday, 6 March, 10 am – 12 noon

Numbers are limited – call 01785 270832 to book a space.

We will be chatting about:

  • breast cancer and lymphoedema

We’ll help you to understand the signs and symptoms of lymphoedema, how to manage the condition and treatment options. And we’ll demonstrate some helpful exercises.

The appointment – what to expect

All appointments are built around your needs.

Our new patient appointments last for one hour.

Treatment times can vary from 30–45 minutes up to one hour and 15 minutes.

You can relax with a cup of tea while your treatment takes place.

Specialist equipment

Our Lymphoedema Clinic is equipped with specialist technology designed to target lymphatic congestion, promote fluid drainage and alleviate Lymphoedema symptoms

We are most grateful to Eccleshall Mercia Rotary who recently donated £4,000 for new lymphoedema equipment, enabling us to fund a new deep oscillation pro machine.

We also have a Thor laser machine and Lymphflow Advance treatment.
