"Lack of services"

About: Bunbury Hospital

(as other),

I wanted to refer a client of mine of the lymphoedema clinic for treatment for lymphoedema. The client requires twice daily lymphatic drainage and compression bandaging to reduce oedema for 2 to 3 weeks, then would be reduced enough for a compression garment. However the clinic was unable to treat- they don't do massage or bandaging. This client is on a disabled pension and is unable to afford private treatment.
