Eczema Outreach Support has been working with other organisations and Sanofi to develop a Patient Charter for people living with atopic eczema. It was launched in July in Westminster, London where parliamentarians heard about the experiences of people living with eczema and what needs to change so they receive the best support and care.
The charter makes the following recommendations:
Better access to specialist care and psychodermatology services
People living with eczema become genuine partners in their own care
Improved education and psychosocial support so people with eczema can better manage their condition and their mental health
Dermatology services are supported to provide patient-centric care.
