For anyone who has not yet received a diagnosis, requires advice on compression garments or remeasuring for a repeat prescription, Lipoedema UK’s wonderful team of  Lymphoedema Nurse Consultants led by Mary Warrilow, will offer individual private consultations**.

For patients of all stages Lipoedema UK’s conference offers a caring environment to share the challenges and complex issues that surround living with lipoedema.

Members may purchase  additional tickets for friends or family members, but due to the sensitive medical content discussed at our conference we do not recommend our event for anyone under the age of 16.

Individual members are assured of a warm welcome by our team and will soon feel at home with like minded people who look and feel the same as you do.

If you previously booked a place on the earlier dates, your booking has been automatically transferred to 17th & 18th October 2021.

*Due to work commitments, some of our speakers may opt to provide their presentation via a video link.  Where we have permission, these recordings will be shared with our members as part of our Health & Wellbeing programme of events on future dates. As our events are interactive and private, we do not intend to provide recordings of the entire event as an optional purchase.  

** Appointments for Individual Nurse Consultations will be released approximately one month before the start of the event.  £35 per person per consultation

Overnight accommodation must be booked directly with Whittlebury Hall Hotel and Spa who have agreed to move any accommodation booked previously to the new dates. Please contact them separately to arrange this.
