Age-Related Macular Degeneration

EDM number 459 in 2009-10, proposed by Bob Spink on 14/12/2009.
Categorised under the topic of Health services.

That this House recognises that age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the most common cause of poor sight in people over 60 years; notes that there are two types of AMD, wet and dry, dry being the most common form of the condition; further notes that there is research which suggests that vitamin supplements can help slow down the progression of dry AMD; expresses concern that provision of vitamin supplements to treat AMD on the NHS is decided by local primary care trusts and therefore postcode-controlled; congratulates the Government for providing treatment for wet AMD on the NHS; and urges it to provide treatment for dry AMD on the NHS to all those over the age of 60, irrespective of where in England they happen to live.

This motion has been signed by a total of 52 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
