Psoriasis

This guideline gives a step by step guide to what different treatments to try. It also gives a good guide to what we should be asking about in history taking to judge the impact and severity of the disease. The management is a bit difficult to explain in words, so I’ve done a flow-chart, which hopefully will make it a bit easier to follow. Remember that Portsmouth has its own guidance on management of psoriasis on the PIP.

Judging the Severity of Psoriasis:

You can do a ‘Physician’s Global Assessment’ and ask the patient to do a ‘Patient’s Global Assessment’.  This involves grading the psoriasis as clear, nearly clear, mild, moderate, severe or very severe and allows changes to be monitored.

"I was delighted to have been invited to join GP locum chambers. I enjoy great peer support from my colleagues via our monthly meetings, which has been helpful to me discussing some specific things that arise with GP locum working.

I have found LocumDeck really straightforward to use and immensely helpful; in particular invoicing and the pension forms A and B has cut down my admin time dramatically, which I’m pleased about. The support from NASGP's membership support manager, is excellent, friendly and knowledgeable.

NASGP membership brings with it a host of benefits, including a range of excellent materials to draw on for support and learning. I would recommend NASGP chambers to anyone working or thinking of working as a GP locum."
