• Dentistry to be more accessible to NHS patients
    Dental health is grossly under-rated and undervalued by the government and dental practices who often have gone private to make more money. Poor oral/dental hygiene and care leads to thousands of people suffering and being admitted to hospital for treatment due to infections which could be prevented if dentistry was part of the NHS agenda We don’t pay to see a GP, we should not have to pay to see a dentist. People struggle to get on the books of a dentist and their dental health suffers. I’ve been on the receiving end of being removed from a Dental Practice with no communication from them about this. I’ve also had to wait to be able to see a dentist due to lack of money. Dental Practices need to be held to account as there is little fall back for the clients to appeal this.

  • Keep The N.H.S Free.
    Everyone should be able to afford healthcare. As teenagers, we are worried about the future of NHS. Budget cuts on health should never leave the vulnerable in debt to pay for the their health.

  • Please extend the medications export ban to palliative care drugs
    *Breaking News* The cat is finally out of the bag re. UK medicine shortages after the government eventually took action today to prevent the plans of many drugs wholesalers to export stocks of vital drugs intended for the NHS to more lucrative markets instead as a direct consequence of Brexit. I suffer a very rare condition called Erythromelalgia, sometimes known as 'Burning Man Syndrome' because it causes horrific burn-like sensations and sores all over the body. This condition is famously refractory to virtually all other pain treatments. Fortunately since I started taking methadone I have been able to live a partially normal life; the same is true for many other people suffering rare and excruciatingly painful conditions that don't respond to anything other than the very strongest pain drugs. However, for many months now my local pharmacy has been unable to fulfil prescriptions for methadone from the manufacturer Ethypharm, who have claimed 'packaging difficulties' were responsible when all along they were planning to export these drugs intended for the NHS. Today, the UK government was finally forced to take action by restricting the export of 24 medicines, mostly contraceptives or HRT. However, no mention has been the almost complete unavailability of methadone and other opioids to some of the most vulnerable patients in this country. Methadone isn't just taken by addicts, it is an important drug used for palliative care of the terminally ill in hospices as well as by people like myself who have no other option available to them. Worse still, interruptions in supply can send already very sick patients into devastating opioid withdrawal, something that has just happened to me after the shortage forced to resort to a liquid form I simply couldn't absorb. My fear is that the government may fail to include opioids on this list, preferring to act with regard to medicines that affect large numbers of the general public (i.e. people not actually diagnosed with serious, life-altering illness) ahead of minority groups including the most vulnerable of all --the terminally-ill or those with acute long-term pain -- for the sake of their own political expediency. I fear our voice may drowned out by the clamour erupting over medicine shortages, so help it be heard by signing this petition. Thank you, Elizabeth Moriarty

  • Standardise Prescription Medication Packaging
    For the elderly, or mentally challenged, it can be quite daunting to be faced with a change in packaging of medication. What has been a yellow box suddenly changes to a blue or pink one when the pharmacy uses a different supplier. Not only can the change in outer packaging be confusing the pills inside can vary in shape, colour and size. For someone who is accustomed to taking two of the large pink "Smarties" to be faced with two white, flat pills can be quite disconcerting and potentially dangerous. We, the undersigned request that an industry wide standard for shape and packaging be implemented, so that all medication of the same ingredient and strength are the same irrespective of the manufacturer.

  • Petition to Stores to Encourage People to Buy Cruelty-Free Beauty Products
    The Solution: In order to do this, stores need to take responsibility for boosting the awareness and sales of cruelty-free brands. To do this, stores should create specific sections where shoppers can view and test a selection of popular cruelty-free products. These sections need to be visible to customers, and attractive. In addition to this, stores should make a push to educate customers about the benefits of buying cruelty-free products instead of animal-tested ones. If all these efforts are made by popular high-street stores, the number of brands switching to cruelty-free practices will surely increase.

  • Bring the life changing migraine drug Erenumab to England and Wales.
    Migraine is a common health condition affecting 1 every 5 women and 1 every 15 men according to NHS. Based on my own experience and according to the Migraine Trust, Migraine is more than just a headache. As a migraine sufferer myself it really affects my personal and working life. As a mother of two young boys I have to cope with the amount of pain and discomfort in each migraine attack that I have to face regularly. Since migraine is a debilitating condition , it severely affects sufferers ability to work while having migraine attack which can be regular and long lasting.

  • Don’t turn away NHS patients without IDs
    Some GPs are turning away patients who can’t produce ID or proof of address. It means vulnerable people can’t see the doctor when they need to. This is against the rules. The NHS is clear - you don’t need to produce ID to see a doctor. But the rules aren’t being enforced. We need Health Secretary Matt Hancock to make sure they are. And together, hundreds of thousands of us can convince him. There are many reasons you might not have ID on you. You might be homeless, or fleeing an abusive partner, you might have moved here recently and not have a permanent address yet. It doesn’t matter - turning people away from seeing the doctor is wrong. Not only that - it could end up costing our NHS more down the track when people get sicker and show up at A&E. Please sign the petition today. Together we can convince Matt Hancock to crack down on GPs who are turning people away.
