Together we can make this happen…

On the 26th of May 2021 we heard MP Jane Hunt’s excellent speech during a Westminster Hall debate, on making injectable vitamin B12 available over the counter from pharmacies. This finally gave all people with B12 deficiency a voice.

If you missed it, please watch here at 4.05 pm – it is only 30 minutes long.

Minister, Nadine Dorries MP, responded to Jane’s speech stating that “We are pushing on an open door..”  I’m sure you’ll agree, this is fantastic to hear!

Men and Women are affected by B12 deficiency..

Nadine knows that vitamin B12 deficiency affects both men and women but she sees that there is a great opportunity for more voices to be heard by gathering evidence by responding to the survey on the Women’s Health Strategy.

Please Note: This survey closes on 13th June 2021 so please act now, it takes around 5 minutes to complete. I appreciate that because health is devolved, that this is only asking for women in England to respond, but…

We are not leaving anyone out…

We need to hear all voices and capture all evidence so, if you are male, or if you are female and live outside of England…

Here’s the way to do this:

Writing to your MP – you can find their email address here: Copy your story to both your own MP and to Jane Hunt, MP  –  jane.hunt.mp@parliament.uk , so that all of our voices are heard. Jane will collate your evidence and send it onto the relevant devolved offices. To help Jane, please mention which country you live in.

In your email:-

Please add the debate link: https://parliamentlive.tv/Event/Index/5068d0e3-e938-4093-9b77-520982bf0db2  Asking your MP to watch from 4.05pm onwards.

Tell them why you feel it is essential to make injectable B12 available to buy OTC from pharmacies in the UK.

Perhaps add the petition link from the 23rd of September last year, Titled; Removing classification of prescription only medicine from injectable vitamin B12

We should hear some news by the end of June 2021.
