Consultation Reports & Correspondence

Lymphoedema treatment requires teamwork from many disciplines including yourself, lymphoedema therapist, your general practitioner and any medical specialists or surgeons involved in your care therefore it is important for our correspondence to be sent to all parties involved in your care.

We request that you provide contact information for any relevant therapists and doctors in your care so the report and consultation recommendations can be sent to them as well as yourself.
