Hair loss (alopecia) is a common problem with a variety of causes.
It can often be distressing for the people affected including carers, family and friends. By taking part in this process, people with alopecia and those treating the condition can actively participate and contribute to the next wave of research projects within the UK.
The Hair Loss PSP is an initiative steered by leading UK clinicians & patients, Alopecia UK, the British Hair and Nail Society, and The James Lind Alliance.
Have you ever had a question about the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of hair loss (alopecia) and not been able to find out the answer?
You can access the Hair Loss PSP survey online or visit Alopecia UK for more information.
