That this House recognises the often profound psychological and physical impact that hair loss can have on individuals undergoing treatment for cancer and on those with alopecia; notes with concern the variation in quality, access and equity of wig provision across the UK; further notes the significant impact that good quality wigs and wig services can have on the self-esteem and self-confidence of individuals following treatment for cancer or as a result of other medical hair loss; further recognises the vital work being undertaken by My New Hair in campaigning for an improvement in the quality and choice of wigs provided by the NHS; warmly welcomes My New Hair's work in providing a national helpline and online resource where patients and carers can access the information they need in order to make an informed choice about the services available to them, includingon choosing a wig, options for children, men and minority ethnic groups through to aftercare and styling; and calls on the Government to take action to reassess the current commissioning guidelines for NHS wig services in order to provide a high standard of care to all individuals sufferingfrom alopecia or medical hair loss.
