All Party Parliamentary Group on Skin Event

Encourage your MP to represent your concerns at this important parliamentary event.

Despite the fact that millions of people in the UK live with inflammatory skin conditions, general public and policy-makers are often unaware of the painful and disabling effects of conditions such as psoriasis.

This can lead to people suffering in silence as they are not being provided with the right information or access to the appropriate treatment.

The Psoriasis Association has previously raised concerns with the All Party Parliamentary Group on Skin (APPGS) over variations in the implementation of expert guidance, and ultimately care, between commissioners and providers of healthcare. We have also been encouraging people to write to their local MPs if they have experienced problems accessing treatment for their psoriasis such as the rationing of some emollients.

The APPGS has now organised an event in parliament for MPs, the primary purpose of which is to inform Parliamentarians of the pressing issues facing people with inflammatory skin conditions. It will include speeches and information leaflets and the Psoriasis Association will be there to represent the patient experience.

The event takes place on Wednesday 24th July and we need as many MPs to attend as possible. All MPs will shortly be sent information about the event, but in order to reinforce the message, please do write to your local MP asking them to attend on your behalf. You can find out who your local MP is here.

It is so important to raise awareness of psoriasis and the more support we can generate for this event, the more backing we will have to implement improvements in patient care.

The Psoriasis Association is the UK's leading national charity and membership organisation for people affected by psoriasis – patients, families, carers and health professionals Read More >
