Event description

Description

Open to everyone affected by eczema, this year's Eczema Information Day includes a fantastic programme of discussions from experts, looking at the management of eczema and the needs for psychological and emotional support.

With our Confidence to Care campaign, we want to encourage people with eczema to know they have a right to the support they need. That means not being prepared to accept symptoms that cause difficulties with everyday life. This free event will provide you with the latest updates and information you need to manage your own eczema.

We want you to build your confidence to make sure your needs are met.

So come along and hear from the pros on what you can do, and the support you deserve to receive.

If you have any problems please contact us at info@eczema.org

There are limited spaces so please be mindful on your commitment to attend.
