Programme of work

A summary of the work undertaken by the CoP from 2018-2020 is availableĀ here.

From October 2019 to March 2020, the CoP supported the TCST to fully revise the 2016 Commissioning Guidance for Lymphoedema Services for Adults Living with and Beyond Cancer. The 2020 Commissioning Guidance and all of the resources associated with this work are available on the Healthy London Partnership website at

The CoP has a programme of work that is updated regularly. 2020-2021 this focuses on:

  • Education (including an education needs analysis and production of webinars and other learning material) and development of a career pathway for the lymphoedema workforce.
  • Carrying out a second audit of the minimum dataset across London (with possible comparative groups in other parts of the country) and embed the dataset across all services represented in the CoP
  • Developing a communications plan to promote awareness of the Lymphoedema Guidance and the work of the CoP, incorporating a range of strategies including social media
