The LSN produces an on-going series of fact sheets covering a wide range of related topics including 'Swollen Feet and Legs', 'Upper Limb Lymphoedema', 'Skin Care', 'Holidays & Travel', 'What is Cellulitis?', 'Healthy Eating' and 'Lipoedema'. LSN fact sheets are written by health care professionals, with additional input from LSN Trustees and members; and are reviewed by the Charity's Chief Medical Advisor before publication.
The LSN has been awarded the Information Standard quality mark and all of our fact sheets for patients display the Information Standard logo. The Information Standard scheme has been developed by the Department of Health to help the public identify trustworthy health and social care information.
To achieve the standard, organisations have to demonstrate that their processes and systems produce information that is accurate, impartial, balanced, evidence-based, accessible and well-written.
Fact sheets are free to members and a charge is made to cover publication costs and postage and packing for orders received from lymphoedema clinics and hospitals.
