SWEP Communique - Compression Garment applications

21 June 2023
Dear Supplier,

The SWEP Lymphoedema program administration team have noticed an increase in incomplete applications being submitted and this causes unnecessary delays for our consumers and extra administration work for our staff, suppliers and practitioners. 

SWEP has developed a standardised quote template to ensure your quotes have all the information we need as a minimum. This helps us to streamline processes to ensure that consumers receive their garments, as soon as possible. You may have received phone calls from our team or practitioners seeking clarification on quotes which contributes to delay in orders being placed.
