Launch of Patient Information Booklet & Website


Our information booklet, entitled 'Lymphoedema - your questions answered'was produced in partnership with the physiotherapy department of North & West Belfast Health & Social Care Trust when the first (pilot) lymphoedema service in Northern Ireland was set up there in 2006.  Our aim was to raise awareness and provide information about lymphoedema and its treatment.  Lymphoedema Support NI was responsible for all production costs of the booklet.

We launched our information booklet and website at the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA) on 12th April 2006.  Representatives from the Department of Health and other public bodies, together with doctors, physiotherapists, nurses and patients attended this event.

This booklet is endorsed by GAIN (Guidelines and Audit Implementation Network) and to date we have issued 10,000 free copies to patients, healthcare professionals and G.P. practices throughout Northern Ireland.
