The Lymphoedema Network Northern Ireland (LNNI) was set up in February 2008 to oversee the development of lymphoedema services across Northern Ireland. 

Our stakeholders include patients, carers, the general public & organisations. Organisations in the network are from the statutory, voluntary, charitable and private sectors.
The network allows our stakeholders to have an active role in shaping future services.

Venous Leg Ulcers: A Silent Crisis

Pressure sores, wounds and ulcers of all types carry a heavy burden on the health and wellbeing of people across the country. They force people to learn to live with chronic pain and disrupt their lives significantly – taking a heavy toll on their mental health. They also weigh heavily on the system, as the cost of managing wounds is thought to be over £4.5 billion a year for the NHS – a figure that rivals the costs associated with other high profile conditions, such as obesity. Management of wounds requires constant attention to support healing and avoid reoccurrence.
