Prescribing information


In this webinar, Dr Laura Savage, Dr Amy Foulkes and Dr John Reed discuss the shape of the patient consultation process in moderate-severe plaque psoriasis and chronic spontaneous urticaria in the COVID-19 era, and what the future may hold for consultations beyond the pandemic. This is followed by a detailed evaluation of the additional support available to healthcare professionals and patients, and we put the You First programme under the microscope (a nurse-led service for dermatology patients) to understand what it can really offer in this time of crisis and also in the future.

You First is a patient support programme developed and funded by Novartis Pharmaceuticals UK Limited. You First is for NHS patients who are receiving Cosentyx (secukinumab) or for whom the prescribing decision has been made. A service level agreement is required for each NHS organisation participating.
