When you are reviewed in the Lymphodema clinic, the clinical nurse specialists will assess your condition and will provide a diagnosis and treatment plan.

The assessment will involve taking your past medical history and current medications, so it would be useful to bring your medications with you. 

Your limbs will be examined and measured, so it is best to wear loose clothing.  Some patients require further investigations.  You should expect to be in the department for 90 minutes.  If you need to attend by ambulance, you should let the administrative clerk know, who will book you in for a morning appointment.
