Hello, I'm Dawn Heal and I've been a qualified nurse for over 30 years. Over that time, I have gained wide experience, practising in both England and the USA, for the last 11 years have now specialised in the care of patients with swollen limbs (lymphoedema). Unfortunately, there is a history of poor recognition of lymphoedema, with a lack of experience even among many doctors, despite it being long term, debilitating condition.
This is a situation I am striving to change, as those who suffer know that it requires much better recognition and care. I am a certified manual lymphatic drainage therapist and have been in practice at the world renowned Hampshire Clinic for over 8 years. I run a highly successful Lymphoedema Clinic with clients coming from all over Southern England. I also work as a Clinical Nurse Specialist teaching other health care professionals throughout the UK in the care of patients with lymphoedema.
Treatment costs are covered by most private health insurance companies, and I am a registered BUPA provider. I treat NHS patients who can be referred for treatment by their own GP or specialist nurse. Many patients return for ongoing, private maintenance treatment on a regular basis. This may not be covered by insurance, but you may be surprised to learn that this is less expensive than many other regular Medical treatments.
