I am writing to enquire if your Jersey has any local guidelines for the treatment of psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis using biologic drugs. If such guidelines exist, please could I request a copy.
The Health and Community Services’ Dermatology Department follows the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and British Association of dermatologists guidelines for Dermatological conditions including psoriasis. See links below:

All treatments are individualised to the patient. Following assessment of the severity of the condition and assessment of the psychological impact of the condition, treatment for dermatological psoriasis includes topical treatment which may or may not include phototherapy, systemic therapies and the use of biologic treatments.
Treatment for Psoriatic arthritis is also individualised to the patient and may include the use of biologic drugs.
