Prospect Hospice provides a specialist service designed to support the care of people living with a condition called lymphoedema.
This service is provided by therapists and nurses with specialist training from our outpatients centre. Most of the treatment for people with lymphoedema is self care, and although there is no cure for it, with the right treatment the symptoms can be improved and the benefits long-lasting.
Treatment involves a combination of skincare, exercises and lifestyle advice. For more complex lymphoedema other more specialist techniques might be used.
Referrals to this service are usually made by your hospital consultant or GP.
