Campaigning in parliament
We greatly value cross-party support from parliamentarians across the UK. This is vital in our fight for improved neuromuscular services. We provide detailed briefings for our parliamentary supporters ahead of meetings, debates and questions.
How members of parliament can support us
Supported by the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, cross-party groups in Westminster, the Welsh Assembly, the Scottish Parliament and the Northern Ireland Assembly have been investigating access to specialist neuromuscular care and social care across the UK. The four reports produced, with their recommendations, provide a focal point for the continued battle to ensure that action is taken to address the significant gaps in the provision of specialist neuromuscular care and to implement service improvements.
