Lucie Casserley, a Physiotherapist based at our site in Little Hulton, has been a Lymphoedema Specialist for four years and works in our Lymphoedema Team. The British Lymphology Society is a body that provides support for those involved in the care and treatment of people with lymphoedema and related lymphatic disorders.
I am very excited to have the opportunity to get involved in the very valuable work that the BLS does to advance knowledge in the field of lymphology. Improving the expertise and skills of professionals caring for people with lymphoedema is something that I’m very passionate about and I’m looking forward to supporting the BLS in its drive to do this, for example by sharing information about the work that we do at St Ann’s with specialists across Greater Manchester and indeed throughout the UK. The breadth of work that the BLS does is extremely impressive, as well as looking to improve standards of care, it promotes the importance of early access to treatment, early detection and where appropriate screening and prevention. I’m very honoured to have been appointed as a Trustee and am looking forward to helping this highly respected charity to achieve its objectives. Lucie Casserley
