This question will be discussed at the next ILF Webinar from a Welsh and a French perspective. Drs Melanie Thomas and Rhian Noble-Jones will present the research they have done over COVID-19 in Wales and how they changed format using LYMPROM and virtual means to ensure patients were supported. Furthermore, Dr Sandrine Mestre Godin will talk about how the COVID-19 situation in France has affected the centres in lymphology in regard to access to diagnosis and treatment, request for vaccination and impact on education programmes.
