British Lymphology Society (BLS)

About Us:
The BLS is registered charity, the purpose of which is to preserve and protect good health of people living with lymphoedema / chronic oedema.

Our Purpose and Aims:

The BLS provides a strong professional voice and support for those involved in the care and treatment of people with lymphoedema and related lymphatic disorders, including lipoedema. We seek to achieve high standards of care across the UK, raise awareness of the condition, promote early detection and intervention with supported self-management. We work with other stakeholders, advise government, NHS and other professional bodies and organisations, to effect change and influence practice by:

  • Advancing education and knowledge in the field of lymphology and related subjects
  • Fostering interest in and co-ordinating a strategy for improving the management of chronic oedema, particularly lymphoedema
  • Maintaining a register of specialist centres in the United Kingdom and Ireland
  • Improving the knowledge, expertise and skills of health care professionals treating them

Benefits to People Living with Lymphoedema:
We are enthusiastic about wide dissemination of information and clinical guidance for any health or social care professional caring for people with chronic oedema, offering free access to helpful resources by registering as a ‘Friend of BLS’. If you are interested in becoming a ‘Friend’ or to support the Society in striving for better understanding and treatment for lymphoedema by becoming a member, please visit our website.

Raising Awareness of Lymphoedema
Movement is one of the best tools we have for keeping the lymphatic system healthy. That’s why the British Lymphology Society has launched the EveryBodyCan campaign. We want to help healthcare practitioners give people with or at risk of developing lymphoedema the encouragement they need to become and stay active. EveryBodyCan find their secret weapon to help them get moving. We’ve created lots of resources for patients and healthcare professionals, so head over to our event page to find out more.
