On the eve of the General Election, over 270 prospective parliamentary candidates have signed Pledge for Patients making it our most successful Pledge for Patients campaign to date. These candidates have pledged to support those affected by rare, genetic and undiagnosed conditions by agreeing to work to:
- Fix the problems preventing or delaying UK patients having NHS access to rare disease medicines, treatments and care
- Make sure the NHS is detecting people affected by rare, genetic and undiagnosed conditions as early as possible
- Build on the UK Strategy for Rare Diseases, to ensure the UK remains a world leader in research and innovation
Thank you to all of those who have contacted prospective parliamentary candidates, helped spread the message of our campaign and contributed to its success.
