Lymphoedema service

Lymphoedema is a condition which occurs when there is damage to the lymphatic draining system. This causes a build-up of fluid and swelling of limbs.

NSCP provide the Lymphoedema Service across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. They provide specialist care, treatment, support and advice to patients and their carers via a team of expert nurses.

The Lymphoedema Service provides patient centred care, undertaking holistic assessments, addressing physical and psychosocial health needs and individually planning and providing specialist treatments for patients with Lymphoedema.
