What is this Campaign About?
If you’re reading this then the chances are that you or someone you care about dearly has been consistently let down by the NHS. It is DWED’s aim to bring our predicament in to the political sphere and as such we are asking you to get in touch with your MP. With all of the hugely unpopular changes to the NHS now is the perfect time to get out voice in there and make a big noise.
Who is my MP?
You can find out who the MP for your area is by visiting www.theyworkforyou.com
How to Contact your MP
1. Contact your MP in writing, or by email with the standard template provided. This will ensure that at least our message gets out there. If you do not want to arrange a meeting then this is all you need to do.
2. Ask to arrange a meeting with your MP to discuss the issues in the template. Most hold a local meeting (or a surgery) monthly for constituents to raise issues. According to Diabetes UK ‘Surgeries are usually advertised in local papers, in libraries or on the MP’s website.’ Meeting MPs in person and explaining your individual situation will put a face behind the words and add a personal touch. You all know the issues, you’ve lived them. I personally will be discussing lack of resources and recognition but I know for some others it may be issues with A&E care or Psychiatric Assessment Criteria.
3. Follow up; It is important that we keep up the pressure for change so ensure that you follow up any communication with an email/ telephone call etc
