This year the BLS and LSN are joining forces on ‘The Sock It Campaign’ to raise awareness for lymphoedema.
In the UK there are more than 200,000 men, women and children living with lymphoedema. Show your support by wearing odd socks during Lymphoedema Awareness Week. Share your photos via social media #lymphoedemaawareness #Sockit
Raising Awareness and Looking After Legs
BSN medical is supporting the Chief Nursing Officer’s Summit in Liverpool this week, with Jane Mayes, BSN medical Clinical Nurse Specialist providing lower limb health checks in line with the “Looking After Legs” campaign.
Lower limb disease is closely associated with obesity and many other co-morbidities like vascular issues and lymphoedema, with huge costs to the NHS incurred through avoidable hospital admissions and outpatients. Early detection of disease progression will reduce the number of people presenting with conditions that include leg ulcers, leaking legs and chronic oedema.
