Psowhat? Campaign

FIGHTING BACK AGAINST PSORIASIS

Today in the UK1 and Ireland2, nearly 2 million people are living with psoriasis.

Recognising that much still needs to change in the care of people living with psoriasis, a group of patients, healthcare professionals and charities have joined together to fight back against psoriasis.

The PSO What? Report, led by the Patients Association and LEO Pharma in collaboration with the expert PSO What? Taskforce, shows that psoriasis is far from ‘just a skin condition’.

Action needs to be taken now by patients, healthcare professionals and the public. Watch the video to hear how you can make a difference.

LEO Pharma has provided core funding, editorial input and undertaken survey-based research to support the development of the PSO What? Report.

PSO What? will you do?

People across the UK and Ireland have pledged to make a difference. Join them.

Whether you are someone living with psoriasis, a GP or healthcare professional, or know someone with the condition, make a pledge here to do one thing differently to help make a difference for the nearly 2 million people living with psoriasis in the UK1 and Ireland2.

93 % of people surveyed reported that their psoriasis negatively affected their quality of life

PSO What? is the reality of psoriasis care

A survey commissioned for the PSO What? Report shows that psoriasis negatively affects the quality of life of 93% of the people surveyed, but a third of people with the condition do not regularly visit their GP each year – many suffer in silence.1

All people living with psoriasis deserve regular reviews with a healthcare professional – at least annually – to ensure they can access the best psoriasis care possible and screen for further complications. Pledge to make this standard practice across the UK and Ireland.
