PocketMedic has worked with the Lymphoedema Network to create 17 films with therapists and patients to help people understand the condition and how to manage it. We worked with some charming children and adults and have learned HUGE amounts ourselves about living with lymphoedema and building self-management into every day life.
Health Secretary Vaughan Gething from Welsh Government was at the launch in Swansea and said, “Using technology, such as video clips in this way, will help patients better manage their condition and reduce the need for multiple hospital visits. I am looking forward to hearing about how this new scheme has benefitted patients.” We are too!
National clinical lead for Lymphoedema, Melanie Thomas said, “These video prescriptions will improve care in rural settings across Wales, whilst also improving access to specialist lymphoedema care remotely.”
