We are delighted to welcome Julie to Orchard Barn she will be offering much needed advice and treatment for all types of Lymphoedema, mild/chronic oedema and Lipodema. Julie is a registered nurse and has been practicing for 9 years, 6 years ago she began working as a specialist nurse within a Lymphoedema clinic. In order to work at this level Julie obtained a degree level qualification from Staffordshire University in Management of Oedema in 2010 and she also successfully completed a course in The Leduc Method of medical lymphatic draining (MLD) and has kept her practice relevant with 2 yearly updates, the latest was in 2016 at which time she undertook training in Fluoroscopy Guided MLD (FG-MLD). During the same year she also gained a BSc Professional Health Studies (Tissue Viability). Julie has recognised the lack of Lymphoedema services available within the area, especially for those with primary and secondary to non-cancer causes although services are limited for all.
In Julie’s spare time she enjoys spending time with her two horses, she finds this a great way of recharging her batteries.
