"We work in partnership with our patients to plan their treatment and support them to identify many self-help factors that allow people to manage their condition and live a healthy and independent life."

Lymphoedema Support Suffolk volunteers will be joined by Gylda Nunn, head of integrated therapies and Sharon Basson, head of community nursing, at the West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust.

They will give information about the West Suffolk Lymphoedema Service provided by the Trust, and their aims for the service in 2019.

The meeting is also an opportunity for current patients to ask questions and give feedback about their experiences of the service.
