The British Lymphoedema Awareness Week

As a member of the British Lymphology Society, Daylong are proud to support the British Lymphoedema Awareness Week

Sunday 5 March–Saturday 11 March 2017

Lymphoedema is a chronic condition that results in swelling of the body, most commonly the limbs. It is caused when poor drainage of the body’s lymphatic system results in fluid collecting in the tissues.

A key part of the long-term management of lymphoedema is using compression hosiery to support the lymphatic system, to maintain the limb at a steady volume.

Lymphoedema can have a huge negative impact on a person’s emotional and physical wellbeing. Sadly, this can often be made worse by the difficulties experienced with getting compression hosiery dispensed quickly and accurately.

For example in Wales, approximately 50% of all garments prescribed for people with lymphoedema were dispensed and supplied inaccurately. Worse, there was also an excessive wait to receive the incorrect product. These issues can cause a delay in starting therapy and could result in harm or be ineffective if the garments dispensed don’t fit.

Here at Daylong, we are experts at dispensing compression hosiery. Its what we do! We stock a huge range of products from a variety of suppliers and our experienced team means that less than 5% of our dispensing is inaccurate. Furthermore, our prescription service is quick, easy and delivered for free right to your door.

Daylong is a dispensing appliance contractor (DAC), which simply means you can choose us to dispense your lymphoedema compression hosiery prescription instead of your local pharmacy.

All you need to do is send your prescription to us, and we will do the rest.
