• 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.

  • Warning on dirty cars
    Such cars are a major health hazard and should not be plugged in glamorous TV adverts without a major warning being placed in a prominent position on such adverts.

  • Bowel cancer screening
    Personally, I have lost a cousin, two aunts and my mother to bowel cancer, and all but one of them were over the age of 74. I live every day wondering if this simple test could have saved them.

  • HRT Shortage
    Millions of women are currently unable to obtain HRT patches/tablets either at all or no guarantee of continuous supply leading to debilitating symptoms. This is completely unacceptable that women are left in this situation with nowhere to turn. Many women are having to eek out their current supply if they have it with no hope of obtaining more or dealing with a lottery system with chemists who have no idea of future stock or availability.

  • National Minimum Standard for TV Subtitles and loop systems for the deaf and hard of hearing
    Subtitles, on TV programmes do not always appear. When they do they can often appear patchy or intermittent making it very difficult for deaf and hard of hearing people to follow tv programmes. Live programmes eg news are very difficult to follow. Technology should be able to automatically put on screen words just spoken on live programmes. Subtitles vary across TV channels. There should be a uniform minimum standard. TV Subtitles should not be huge chunky lettering that takes up nearly a third of the screen. People who depend on subtitles can be embarrassed by the way the size of the subtitles make it difficult for other people watching to enjoy the programme. Subtitles should always be included on dvd/bluRay discs of TV shows and films for sale in the shops. Loop systems Organisations that have a loop system installed use an approved logo to indicate this. But there is no guarantee that the loop system will prove satisfactory to people who wear hearing aids. This is because they vary enormously across the country and there is no national minimum standard for how they are supposed to work. Many loop systems are inappropriate for the size of the building with poor training provided to office/building support staff who are often left unable to help. People who use loop systems frequently discover that the reception they receive varies from one building to another. There doesn't seem to be a national monitoring scheme that can ensure high standards of loop system are provided and maintained so that people who use loop systems do not need to worry about being able to hear differently wherever they go. Hearing organisations and charities can have the ability to regulate this vital area that affects people who use hearing aids every day. Government needs to pass the necessary laws to ensure improvements are made to both subtitling and loop systems across the UK.

  • Stop South Tees NHS Privatisation
    NHS Foundation Trusts are democratic. The principles behind NHS Foundation Trusts build on the sense of ownership many local people and staff feel for their hospital. NHS Foundation Trusts have unique governance arrangements and are accountable to local people, who can become members and governors. NHS Foundation Trusts strengthen local ownership of – and responsibility for – hospital and other health services. Major decisions are informed by active participation from members based in local communities. This NHS Foundation Trust is accountable to its members though the Council of Governors. It has a duty to consult and involve the Council of Governors (comprising patients, staff, members of the public and partner organisations) in the strategic planning of the organisation, and major decisions are informed by active participation from members based in local communities. All 8500 members of staff are automatically members of the Trust. Members of the local community, patients and carers can apply to become members. There are currently nearly 5000 public and patient members. There has been no consultation with the Council of Governors. Members have been unaware of what has been happening until now – when the plan is about to be implemented. They have not had the opportunity to actively participate. I don’t want this Trust to set up a private company so that it can indirectly employ staff on non-NHS terms and conditions. I see this move as damaging to the NHS. It is a step towards privatisation which I do not want the Trust to take. Please sign this petition to support the call for the Trust to reverse its decision; and to not use a wholly-owned subsidiary company to employ staff as non-NHS.
