An epetition has been created by Dr Ravi Mahadeva, the chairman of the Alpha-1 Alliance.
Dr Mahadeva writes:
“We’ve just launched an online petition to the Department of Health calling on the Government to nationally commission a specialised service for Alpha-1 so that patients can get the vital treatment and support they need. It’s really important that we get as many signatures as possible to demonstrate the strength of feeling about the need for specialised Alpha-1 services and we need your help to make this happen.
Please show your support for the campaign by signing our e-petition, then spread the word by forwarding the petition to friends, family and work colleagues. Don’t forget to post the petition on Facebook and Twitter too, if you use them. We currently need to reach 5,000 signatures in order to make it into the top 10 petitions to the Department of Health, and if we can get 100,000 signatures the petition has the chance to be debated in Parliament.”
