What do I need to prepare for my first appointment?

To prepare for your first appointment with LK Lymphoedema Centre, we would appreciate that:

  • You arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your first appointment time is due to complete some paperwork including a treatment consent form.
  • Bring along your medical practitioner (GP) or specialist contact and referral (if applicable).
  • If applicable, please do bring along any compression garment or aids that you are currently using or have used previously.

What will my first appointment be like?

Our clinician will take your medical history to assess and most importantly, to understand your concern so do feel free to share your journey. During the first appointment with you, she will review any previous or existing appliances e.g. stockings you have used. Importantly, she will also address your concerns and recommend a plan tailored to your needs and preferences.

Please do bring along your partner or other person for the session if you wish.
