Lymphoedema is a condition which causes chronic swelling in the body but mostly in the arms and legs. This condition develops when the lymph system, which drains away fluid from the tissues of the body, has become damaged or does not function normally. Lymphoedema, which can be primary or secondary, cannot be cured, but it can be treated. As the Jersey Health service does not provide treatment for this problem, the Support Group run a clinic for non-cancer Lymphoedema patients. The clinic has a professional therapist and is on a weekly basis at the Island Medical Centre, 14, Gloucester Street, St. Helier. Referrals to the clinic must be made by a suitably qualified health care professional. Enquiries concerning lymphoedema and its treatment should be directed to our therapist, Mrs. Helena Parris on 07797 764877
Full membership is open to all those suffering from Lymphoedema, who will be provided with on-going support in the treatment of their condition. Associate membership is open to anyone who wishes to promote the aims and objectives of the Support Group. Full membership is mandatory, but following a policy change, there are presently no fees payable for either full or associate membership.
Volunteers are very welcome to assist at our various fund-raising events with transport, manning stalls etc., If you can help, please contact our Secretary.
