Lymphoedema Nurse Specialist
Kerry Sant, RN MSc
Flow Lymphoedema Care
Kerry Sant is a lymphoedema nurse specialist with 20 year’s experience working in the clinical practice of lymphoedema. She has an MSc in rehabilitation and has trained in
Vodder, Leduc and Fluoroscopy-Guided manual lymphatic drainage. She is also the senior lymphoedema practitioner at the Royal United Hospital NHS foundation trust and is
passionate about lymphoedema care.
- Decongestive lymphatic therapy
- Manual lymphatic drainage
- Lymphatic kinesiotaping
Lymphoedema is the permanent (chronic) swelling of a part of the body due to a build-up of fluid in the skin. Lymphoedema can be managed and controlled with treatment and
compliance with daily self-care. Even severe and chronic lymphoedema will respond well to appropriate treatment over time.
Flow lymphoedema care offers both a therapeutic and remedial service for the management of primary and secondary lymphoedema and lipoedema, bringing together the
four cornerstone disciplines of decongestive lymphatic therapy – Manual Lymphatic Drainage [MLD], Compression Therapy, Skin Care and Exercise. Lymphatic kinesiotaping can
also be used to aid lymph flow. Flow can offer additional physical therapies not always available within the NHS and will always seek to complement your existing treatment regimes.
All practitioners at the Horizon Suite have provided evidence of professional qualifications and membership of professional organisations as well as insurance to cover their work. However, we suggest that you carry out your own checks before engaging the services of a practitioner as we cannot be held responsible for any issues that arise from using these services.
