“As a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Skin, I am all too familiar with the pain and suffering endured by many skin disease patients. Although significant progress has been made, in areas such as training in the diagnosis of skin diseases, much still needs to be done. Skin Deep Behind the Mask is the first organisation that I am aware of that aims to provide support for all types of skin disease patients. It is such a pleasure to lend my support.”
