Prescribing Compression Garments – A View From the Other Side

 Helen Davey, Lymphoedema Therapist and Mary Woods, Lead Nurse

 

Introduction

Over recent years an increasing number of compression garments have become  available on FP10. Patients have reported problems obtaining the correct garments, with GP Practices  finding it difficult to identify garments on the different electronic prescribing systems.

 

Three audits completed within our team over the past few years highlighted the continued problems patients face in obtaining compression garments on prescription, despite changes in our practice.  The audits did not explore the process followed by a GP in generating the prescription therefore this area was the subject of this small study.
