"Clinic availability at new hospital"

About: Buckland Hospital

Why is there no Lymphoedema Clinic at the new Buckland Hospital?

Do you realise how impossible it is to get any help in this area of Kent?

All Clinics that did exist locally are now closed and it will mean travelling at least 30 Miles to get to one, that is if you can get an appointment plus a referral from your GP, are physically able to travel there and can get an answer from the switched off telephones in the first place!

This situation is dire and is a National disgrace for all

Lymphoedema sufferers in the UK as I'm sure this is not only happening in this part of Kent.

This needs to be sorted out now.
