Project information

Help equip our Lymphodema Clinic

Lymphodema patients learn how to manage their condition under the expert care of our Lymphodema Clinic. The clinic has grown significantly. To enable us to efficiently support our patients we badly need to equip the clinic with purpose build cabinets for storage of medical items and new flooring.

  • Need

    Need

    To alleviate the space needed for the storage of medical and hosiery items needed for the treatment of Lymphodema.
    As we have adapted the current space of the clinic to enable us to treat more patients, the floor has been damaged and new flooring throughout the area it is a Health & Safety essential.

    Solution

    The new cabinets would give us floor to ceiling purpose built storage, freeing up valuable clinic space. The storage would improve the functionality of the clinic by being able to efficiently find required items.
    As this is an area that the patients spend a lot of time whilst having their treatment, it has to be organised whilst trying to make it a home from home environment. The whole project will enable us to adhere to our high standard of care to our patients.
