We have a dynamic group of patient ambassadors in UK/Ireland who have been vital in taking the Psoriasis Shout Out® forward by informing and supporting our activities and events.
Our ambassadors provide peer support acting as 'patient experts' and signposting members of the public to further information on psoriasis. Our ambassadors and patient volunteers are a key part of making the Psoriasis Shout Out® a success.
What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease. It is non-contagious and is characterised by patches of red, flaky skin. The condition is unique to each individual patient- there are many different forms of psoriasis, and the amount of skin involved can range from tiny patches to extensive body coverage. Psoriasis has a genetic component, and flare-ups can be triggered by a variety of factors including stress, anxiety or an infection.
