Petition for fair care - have you signed yet?

Over the last few weeks we’ve been calling for all people affected by Parkinson’s to sign our Fair Care for Parkinson’s petition

We’re using the petition to call on the Government and decision-makers to protect services and make sure people with Parkinson’s get quality care that meets national standards – wherever they live.

As part of our promotion of the petition, we’ve been sending out letters to the editors of newspapers across England asking their readers to support it. We’ve had a great response, with people getting in touch to ask for information and find out how to get involved.

It’s also been really interesting to hear about the different ways people have been campaigning on fair care issues in their local communities. Our letter in the Leicester Mercury this week expressed our disappointment at the decision by local health authorities to cut funding of a community neurology team.

Similarly, in other areas across England, people’s responses have been really encouraging. We’re really excited to see how it progresses between now and November, when we will present the petition to Government.
