International Lymphoedema Framework

The success of the UK Lymphoedema Framework in improving the management of this condition in Great Britain has led many international Lymphoedema experts to express an interest in the Framework Methodology and Spirit. This is why Christine Moffatt CBE and her team decided to set up the International Lymphoedema Framework (ILF) as a charity. The choice of charitable status is a strong message to the lymphoedema community on the ethos and vision that govern the Framework. It is also a guarantee of the independance of the ILF in the ethical use of its resources and its capacity to actively contribute to the improvement of the management of lymphoedema worldwide and especially in developing countries

The National Lymphoedema Partnership (NLP)

The National Lymphoedema Partnership is a body that was established to facilitate collaborative action on lymphoedema issues of common concern and of benefit to all, whilst avoiding duplication of effort and make the best use of scarce resources. It brings together individuals who are in positions of influence through their individual roles or as representatives of key organisations. A basic requirement is a commitment to work together to achieve common goals. This initiative was spearheaded by BLS, with the first meeting being at the International Lymphoedema Framework Conference in Glasgow 2014. The group has been responsible for initiating several guidance documents to raise awareness and support practitioners in developing and managing their services.
