10th November 2019
The focus of this World NET Day’s campaign is to highlight the challenges patients and clinicians face around ACCESS – access to information, access to care & treatment, access to research and access to support.
With World NET Day fast approaching and a General Election just around the corner – what better time to spotlight your care provision and priority asks of government than right now?
HOW YOU CAN HELP
- Copy and paste the following letter into the body of an email. Edit to include specific cancers not mentioned in the draft campaign letter – neuroendocrine cancer.
- Use the parliamentary website to find the name of your sitting MP (before midnight on 6 November, 2019). You can also use your local council website to find their name and contact details.
- If you MP is standing down at the 2019 General election, you can send the email to you local candidates. Check the Electoral Commission website for details.
- Once you have contacted your MP/candidate, please share on social media using the suggested text:
