Mental Health & Skin Disease report
The APPG on Skin has published the findings from its latest Inquiry into mental health and skin disease. The aim of the report was to gain insight into the state of mental health services available to patients with skin conditions in the UK and the psychological impact of these conditions. It is divided into chapters that aim to cover every aspect of mental health and skin disease, ranging from the design and commissioning of services to healthcare professional training, research priorities and patient advocacy.
You can read the findings and recommendations from the report here

The British Association of Dermatologist collates a list of new, ongoing and resoved medicines supply problems.
An open-ended survey monkey has also been developed to
help track changes in access to medications in the UK.
Please complete the survey if members or patients of your organizations report problems of patients getting access to medicines they need.
