Psoriasis Treatment

The Psoriasis Treatment Program is available at Bendigo UFS Pharmacies.

Bendigo UFS is an active participant in the Victorian Government’s Community Prescribing Pilot (click here for further information on the pilot).

To be eligible to receive a resupply of your usual topical corticosteroid, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Be aged 18 years or older.
  • Have previously been diagnosed with mild plaque psoriasis of the trunk or limbs.
  • Have previously been prescribed a topical corticosteroid to treat your psoriasis.

An appointment will enable patients to gain access to a repeat prescription without needing to go to the general practitioner (GP) first.

What does this pilot program mean for me?

The program is part of the Victorian Government’s Community Prescribing Pilot launched in late October 2023. It enables greater access to support for Psoriasis treatment where it is sometimes hard to get an appointment with a GP.

At your consultation, your Pharmacist will ask you some screening questions in a private consultation to ensure you receive the right treatment and care.

People with or without a Medicare card and international students will be eligible for a service under the pilot.
