After a short break due to health reasons, Joel is back with another insightful episode of the Joel vs Arthritis podcast. In this instalment, we are joined by the wonderful Lucy Chambers, who has had psoriasis since childhood and is a well-respected member of the UK psoriasis community.

Psoriasis is more than just a skin condition, and it can affect people physically and psychologically. Although there is no cure for psoriasis, it can be managed – but it is often a delicate balancing act.

Anyone involved with the Psoriasis Association here in the UK will probably be familiar with Lucy. I have had the pleasure of joining her for a couple of events, focus groups etc. and she has always stood out for the way in which she talks so enthusiastically and confidently about her experiences with the condition – as you’ll soon hear.

I hope you enjoy listening to this conversation as much as we enjoyed recording it.
