I just wondered if anyone has raised the lack of funding for lymphoedema services with their mp or started a petition?
I'm finding it really frustrating that MLD and micro surgery etc has to be at a cost to ourselves. Also I can't even get an appointment to see the specialist nurse for over 6 weeks (she has told me to go back to my oncologist to get the referral I need regarding some problems that I am having as it will be much quicker!!)
I have written to my mp but with no reply, i just wondered if anyone else had any experience of raising the issue with their mp and if they got anywhere?
Also I have been looking for any petitions for parliament but can only find one dating back to 2015, are there any more recent ones? I can find the petition to make lymphoedema the focus for world health day 2018 but nothing that specifically addresses the lack of funding and national strategy?
Thanks in advance
