All Party Parliamentary Group for LDN

Postby Chelsea » Mon Aug 27, 2012 6:36 pm

On Dec 1 2009 a petition for Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) to be accepted as treatment on the NHS was handed in to 10 Downing Street by ITV This Mornings resident doctor, Dr Chris Steele MBE. As we have always believed getting the attention of MPs is the way forward to getting this harmless and effective treatment recognised, I am pleased to say that as a result of Nia Griffith MP's debate in the House of Commons last December, we now have a great opportunity to move this forward.

A select committee has been put together - formally known as the LDN All Party Parliamentary Group and will hold its inaugural meeting on Thursday 13th September! This is a milestone in our pursuit for patient choice to use LDN as they wish and get trials underway. I am therefore sharing this in the hopes that you will help by sending the below to your MP to let them know of this important meeting. It is imperative that we get as many MPs from across the various parties participating.

Below is a template to send to your MP. If anyone on here wouldn't mind emailing their MP with this information I'd be very grateful:-

to MP

[your address]

Dear [name of MP]

Further to the Right Honourable Nia Griffith MP’s debate in the House of Commons with the Right Honourable Simon Burns MP on 8th December 2011, I am pleased to inform you that a LDN All Party Parliamentary Group is being set up to discuss how best to get a low cost effective drug available as front line treatment on the NHS.

As an avid supporter of this harmless therapy and a member of your constituency, I am sending you this email to let you know that the inauguration of this important cross party meeting will take place on:-

Thursday 13th September 2012 at Room 0, Portcullis House at 10.30am.

I would be grateful if you would put this date in your diary and lend your support to this invaluable campaign by attending this meeting.

Should you wish to read up on the debate from held on the 8th December 2011 you can find it on the website

Thank you in advance,

[your name]

Any help on this would truly be appreciated. If you do help, could you let me know the name of your MP and location so I can pass this on to Nia Griffith MP?

Many many thanks!! :-D
