Lobbying your MP or MSP can be a powerful way of helping to improve health care for people with facial palsy in the UK. It is particularly important to share your experiences if you are being denied treatments that you feel could benefit you.
Visit the parliament website to find your MP by name, constituency or postcode.
Send an email or letter explaining the issues that affect you.
We have produced a template letter which you can adapt to suit your own circumstances if you prefer. Some of the facts and figures that we refer to in the letter are relevant to funding in England, because no similar study has been made yet regarding services in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. However, you can still share this information if you are in Scotland, Wales or N.I. and having difficulty accessing treatments, because it demonstrates the general lack of understanding there is about the condition.
