The Macmillan Lymphoedema Association is a community of practice supported by Macmillan Cancer Support.

We use our expertise to develop training materials and teach hundreds of health care professionals across the UK about the management of lymphoedema. General information about lymphoedema and self-management is available on the Macmillan website.

We are part of the Casley-Smith International group of educators and clinicians aiming to improve the standard of lymphoedema care internationally.

Our high-quality teaching is used to deliver accredited university courses, as well as non-accredited courses which do not involve academic work leading to higher education points but do include listing as a Casley-Smith MLD practitioner.
