Lymphoedema

Lymphoedema Awareness Week, 2-6 March 2015International Lymphoedema Awareness Day is on 6 March, 2015 and the British Lymphology Society is celebrating 30 years with the 'Pearls of Wisdom' campaign: Save the NHS £100 for every £1 spent on lymphoedema treatments.

Lymphoedema could happen to any one of us and common sense should guide NHS England policy - conservative treatment and prevention is not only preferable to; but cheaper than, the present state of affairs.
