BLS Lymphoedema Awareness Week

4th - 10th March 2018

The BLS Lymphoedema Awareness Week is a great opportunity to help raise awareness of lymphoedema among health care professionals. Raising awareness of this chronic condition can make a huge difference, helping to reducing the prevalence, severity, and impact of lymphoedema by early recognition and intervention.

Following the success of last year’s ‘Thunderclap’ the British Lymphology Society are once again taking to social medical to help raise awareness.

#Sockit Campaign

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.
