The British Lymphology Society
The British Lymphology Society is a dynamic and innovative body providing a strong professional voice and support for those involved in the care and treatment of people with lymphoedema and related lymphatic disorders, including lipoedema.
Through support of its membership, the Society seeks to achieve high standards of care and equitable access to treatment across the UK, raise awareness of the condition, promotes early detection and intervention with supported self management. We work with other stakeholders, advise government, NHS and other professional bodies and organisations.
The Society was established in November of 1985, originally as the British Lymphology Interest Group (BLIG).
Our aim of promoting professional standards in lymphoedema care and treatment is supported by our objectives:
1) To advance education and knowledge in the field of lymphology and related subjects.
2) To foster interest in and co-ordinate a strategy for improving the management of chronic oedema, particularly lymphoedema.
3) To produce and maintain a register of specialist centres in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
4) To benefit patients by improving the knowledge, expertise and skills of health care professionals treating them
