Save our NHS petition

The problem: The UK government are considering plans to change the NHS which will allow a greater role for private companies, and give spending power over to GPs. The BMA has said the plans are “dangerous and risky” and many charities are unhappy.

A solution: 38 degrees have organised a petition asking the government to protect patient care and listen to experts within the NHS, and not to rush through changes or hand over power to private companies.

Wheelchair provision petition

The problem: 70,000 kids in the UK are waiting for the mobility equipment that they really need, and have to use wheelchairs that are too heavy or otherwise unsuitable. This can be painful, stop them getting about and interacting with others and impede their independence.

A solution: Whizz-Kidz wants the government to fast track reforms to NHS wheelchair provision and need people to sign their petition.
