That this House recognises Psoriasis Awareness Week from 27 October – 3 November 2019 which this year aims to highlight how prospective parents can overcome the potential difficulties in treating psoriasis before, during and after childbirth; notes that the peak onset of psoriasis, which can affect as many as one in 50 people, occurs in those under the age of 25 years when people are beginning to consider their future family planning considerations and can have a devastating effect upon those plans; and calls upon the Government to investigate ways to improve access to all relevant healthcare professionals for people with psoriasis to help with planning for a family and to prevent some of the current delays in receiving effective therapies.
