British Association of Dermatologists Launch Skin Support

The British Association of Dermatologists has launched a website called Skin Support. The website contains resources on skin conditions and support leaflets aimed at helping people to address common problems sometimes associated with skin conditions such as how to regain confidence and low mood.

We would like to invite you to visit the Skin Support website and give your feedback by completing this survey. The survey can be completed by people aged 16 and over, living with skin conditions or on behalf of someone with a skin condition (e.g. parents, partners, friends or family of someone living with a skin condition). The survey is being conducted by researchers at the University of Sheffield and the University of York on behalf of the British Association of Dermatologists. The survey has ethical approval from the University of Sheffield Psychology department. All information you provide will be confidential. You do not have to take part and can decide to stop completing the survey at any time.

As a thank you for completing this survey there is an opportunity to be entered into a prize draw to win one of six £25 amazon vouchers. To be entered into the prize draw you will be asked for your email address when you have completed the survey. This will be kept separate from your survey responses.

If you have any concerns or complaints about the study you can contact Dr Andrew Thompson by email If you notice that you are feeling upset whilst you are taking part in this survey there are services which can offer you support including; your GP, NHS direct (please call 111 for 24 hour health advice), and the Samaritans (08457 90 90 90).
