The Lymphoedema Service is part of Home Health Care and is based at Home Health Care, Orakau Rd, Mangere, with satellite clinics at Home Health Care, Papakura, and Botany SuperClinic.
Where possible, the service endeavours to see patients at a clinic nearest to their home. However, at times patients may be asked to travel to one of the other clinics for treatment.
The Lymphoedema Team are multidisciplinary registered healthcare professionals, specialised in the assessment and treatment of lymphoedema.
The Counties Manukau Health Lymphoedema Service provides assessment, treatment and self management plans. It also provides education and awareness of the risk of developing lymphoedema and to minimise its impact.
Although lymphoedema is a chronic condition it can be well managed.
