What is You First Lite?
You First Lite is a flexible patient support programme for people who have been prescribed Cosentyx (secukinumab).
It offers you a wealth of support, without the need for a referral from your doctor, or you can refer yourself whenever you feel you need additional support. Please note that this tool does not replace any advice or information that your doctor has shared with you. Refer to your doctor when you need.
How can You First Lite help me?
You First Lite offers people like you, who live with psoriatic arthritis or axial spondyloarthritis, free additional support, all with the aim of helping you to stay on top of your condition.
You First Lite offers the following options that you can choose from, based on what you feel you need:
Ongoing nurse administration of Cosentyx.
Additional training on Cosentyx administration.
Regular calls with your nurse (face-to-face, video or phone), to offer support and answer any queries you may have.
Psychological support via motivational coaching and mentoring techniques. Emotional wellbeing is important and we want to help you achieve your health and lifestyle goals.
Referrals to services to help you lose weight, stop smoking or reduce your alcohol intake.
You can choose support that is specific to your needs, with You First Lite.
How do I sign up?
Signing up is easy. All you need to do is call 0330 8084511.
The You First Lite programme will continue to support you whilst you are receiving Cosentyx. You can withdraw from the programme at any time, for any reason such as change in circumstances, achievement of health goals, no longer wishing to have support.
Your NHS clinical team will continue to manage your care; if, at some point in the future, they decide that Cosentyx is no longer the most suitable treatment for you, the support offered by You First Lite would end in the month after your last Cosentyx dose. Your NHS clinical team would recommend alternative treatments, some of which may offer associated support programmes, and advise on which options are best for you.
