Nurse-led lymphoedema clinic

The nurse-led lymphoedema clinic takes place in the Breast Care Centre at Glenfield Hospital once a week.

The Breast Care Nurses have undergone additional training in the management of lymphoedema. The service offers assessment and treatment plan on an individual basis in line with The British Lymphology Society guidelines. The service will accept referrals from GPs and Consultant Breast Surgeons / Oncologists for patients who have developed mild to moderate, uncomplicated lymphoedema of the arm as a result of breast cancer treatment.
