Penny Porter from Penny Porter physiotherapy will be talking at this meeting. She will tell us about the lymphoedema - related therapies that she offers at her centre on Dragons Well Road, in Henbury.
UPDATE Unfortunately, the Sigvaris visit has been postponed. The AGM will be held at this meeting.
We hope to have a representative from the Sigvaris medical group come to the September meeting. Kristina Jelley will be telling us about the recent changes within Sigvaris and will be showing us some of their lymphoedema products.
Piers Cardiff, a Macmillan support worker, visited the group to discuss the unique problems facing people living with lymphoedema. He is currently working on creating a home support system using volunteers, and we were able to tell him of the everyday difficulties facing people who have lymphoedema.
