What did I say about blogging more frequently? Well, here I am again.
Arthritis Research UK is running a campaign to get general election candidates to become Arthritis Champions. Apparently 1 in 4 local councils make no mention of arthritis in their health assessments, which surprises me given that it’s a condition that affects 10 million people in the UK.
Arthritis Research’s manifesto is to prevent, transform, and cure – which is hard to do when the people in power seem to be making no effort toward this. Not one of the parliamentary candidates in my constituency – that’s Sheffield Central, by the way – (with an email address that ARUK has, at least) is an Arthritis Champion, so I have emailed them all. And the good news is, you can (and should) too.
Oversights like this won’t happen when I’m Prime Minister, you know.
This blog is like my life (except I’m 10 years older now). Came across it whilst googlimg elbow replacements. Anway
Anyway, just thought I’d say hi! Hope things are going well for you. Alex 🙂
