Can I have multiple "jump lines" from a specific text panel to a number of other text panels (stories) on other pages to create an accurate "Full details on page XXX" ??? 

This is kind of back to front from "Continued on page YYY" page jumps.

Any help appreciated!!!

Not really sure from your description - have you an example?   Cross references seems like what you want https://helpx.adobe.com/ie/incopy/using/cross-references.html

Thanks Eugene! That's exactly what I was after. An automated method!
I did work out a manual hack of doing it using "ghost text" frames as an experiment. FYI.
I duplicated a text panel on the page I wanted to reference in copy on another page. I linked the frame to another text frame on the relevant page elsewhere in the document. Here I placed my text eg "For details see page... and entered the Insert Variable - Last Page Number.
This then displayed the correct page number I wanted to back reference to.
I needed to send the first text frame "To Back" and make it's type white so it didn't print. You can also remove any type in the first panel and just leave the "page break" symbol in place. By doing 3 of these text frames on the same page I could link them to 3 other disparate pages elsewhere in the documant and get the correct page number to display there.
However there may be an issue on outputting for bureau printing, those "empty" text frames may get removed.  
Again, many thanks for your help!

UPDATE: The correct online page for "Insert Cross References" for InDesign is here: https://helpx.adobe.com/ie/indesign/using/cross-references.html
The link from Eugene is for InCopy. However both accomplish the same thing!
Tried this technique and it works perfectly!
TIP: You can access the "Cross Reference Editor" from a contextual menu whereever your text insertion point is. It is under the "Interactive" heading.
Again, many thanks for the help.

Oh yes - didn't spot that - but they work the same way.
