Service description:
The Lymphoedema Service is a nurse-led countywide service, available to cancer-related lymphoedema patients.

A lymphoedema is the swelling of an arm, leg or other part of the body, because of an abnormal collection of fluid called Lymph in the body tissues.

This sometimes happens if cancer blocks the drainage of fluid through the lymphatic system. It can also occur when part of the lymphatic drainage system has been removed by surgery of damaged by cancer treatments, such as radiotherapy.

The aim of treatment for Lymphoedema is to relieve discomfort by reducing swelling and to prevent more build-up of fluid.

A Referral can be made to the Lymphoedema Service by a member of the medical profession i.e. G.P., Consultant.
