Lymphoedema

 

Our Lymphoedema Service provides assessment, treatment, advice and support for patients with lymphoedema regardless of cause. We are a nurse-led, outpatient-based service at both Dewi Sant Hospital in Pontypridd, and Kier Hardie University Health Park in Merthyr Tydfil.

Our Lymphoedema Service works closely with the Tissue Viability Team and District Nursing Teams, undertaking joint assessments and reviews which can be carried out at home if a patient is housebound.

Who Is It for?

The Lymphoedema Service provides a specialist service for people who require holistic management of their lymphoedema (regardless of cause). The service is available to anyone within the Cwm Taf Morgannwg area.

Can Anyone Use the Service?

Use of this service is by referral only – all referrals are assessed to ensure that they are suitable. Referrals to this service are on an open access basis. If you feel you could benefit from this service, please speak with your GP in the first instance.

Opening Times
Dewi Sant: Monday to Friday, 8:30am – 4:30pm
Kier Hardie University Health Park: Tuesday & Thursday, 8:30am – 4:30pm
