Many skin conditions are long term and require high levels of self-care and monitoring. The following resources can be used to support patients in understanding their skin condition, as well as signposting them to peer support groups.

A. Skin cancer detection and protecting skin damage (sunburn) from the sun’s Ultraviolet (UV) light (PDF)

B. Patient information for other skin conditions

C. Patient support groups, personal experience videos and support programmes for skin conditions (PDF)

D. Patient information on how to use TOPICAL skin treatments (PDF)

E. Self-management in Eczema and Psoriasis

Prescription prepayment certificates can be applied for online, through pharmacies or by telephone, and can enable savings on prescriptions when regular prescriptions are being charged.
