Reach out to your MP…..
We are pleased to announce that a Urology Awareness Month Early Day Motion (EDM) has been tabled.

The wording of the motion EDM 391 reads:

That this House notes that September is Urology Awareness Month, which aims to raise awareness, knowledge and understanding of urological diseases and their symptoms; observes the devastating impact that conditions such as incontinence can have on quality of life; further notes that an estimated 6 million people in the UK, on average over 9,000 in each parliamentary constituency, are affected by continence problems with many relying on urology appliances every day to enable them to enjoy independence and avoid repeated medical consultation; and supports the joint Urology Trade Association / Urology Foundation commitment which recognises that patient safety and outcomes should remain of primary importance to industry and Government, that every patient is unique in their own right, that patients have a right to be involved in decisions about their care or treatment and that shared decision making between the clinician and patient should be promoted, with patients and clinicians able to choose from a wide range of products and services to suit their individual needs so as to effectively manage their condition and help them to maintain independence and a good quality of life.

We’re asking supporters to encourage their MP to sign EDM 391 – Urology awareness month – Early Day Motions – UK Parliament

Even if they have already signed, an email from you could encourage them to get more involved in our commitment to improving the nations urology health.

Thank you
