Lymphoedema Support Network
The Lymphoedema Support Network is the national patient charity providing information and support for those living with, or at risk of developing lymphoedema and those supporting them. Since it began in 1991 the LSN has grown from a group of seven individuals to become the UK’s leading lymphoedema patient charity. The LSN now has over 3,500 patient members and nearly 80 professional members, an esteemed multi-disciplinary advisory board made up of leading clinicians in the field and has been awarded a prestigious GSK IMPACT award in recognition of its work. The LSN passionately believes that lymphoedema is best managed as a partnership between therapists and empowered, knowledgeable patients. To support this aim the LSN offers a telephone information and support line, a website, quarterly newsletters and a range of over 20 fact sheets, holds patient conferences and works with other key charities in associated fields. The LSN works to raise awareness of lymphoedema, campaigns for better national standards of care and, in partnership with other organisations, assists with research into best practice for the treatment of lymphoedema regardless of cause. The past two years have seen the launch of two new self management DVDs, the introduction of reformatted information for teenagers and young adults living with lymphoedema, the launch of new children’s information packs and the introduction of free membership for all children living with lymphoedema in the UK. The website has also seen a relaunch and now includes an ‘Information for Health Care Professionals’ section.
The LSN mission statement is to ‘represent, support and empower people affected by lymphoedema, promote awareness of the condition and campaign for appropriate, equitable treatment for all.’
The Lymphoedema Support Network values its close working partnership with the BLS.
