We are delighted that Phillip Schofield is Patron of the Ichthyosis Support Group.
“Over the years in the course of my work in television I have met several individuals and their families who have been affected by ichthyosis. It gives me great pleasure to be able to offer my name in support and recognition of the Ichthyosis Support Group, whose work in offering advice and guidance for this difficult and misunderstood congenital condition is vital in helping individuals and families deal with the impact that ichthyosis has on their lives.”
