Call to Action

Call to Action

We need to demonstrate to the Government and Parliament that this is more than a policy issue; the lack of progress in drug development affects real people and real lives. 

That is why we are hosting a lobby of Parliament on 25th March in the House of Commons 4pm-6pm. We are looking for patients, and/or their families, to attend with their constituent MP so that we can get this issue onto the agenda of backbenchers.
