Mr. Hutton

[holding answer 2 November 2001]: Data on the number of lymphoedema clinics across the United Kingdom are not collected either centrally or regionally.

We are aware of the following services available to patients in Walsall: Little Bloxwich day hospice has a full time specialist lymphoedema nurse who runs lymphoedema clinics; St Giles hospice has two lymphoedema nurses providing services.
