Age UK's Painful Journeys Campaign

EDM number 699 in 2017-19, proposed by Timothy Farron on 18/12/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Elderly people and Health services.

That this House welcomes Age UK's Painful Journeys campaign that is designed to raise awareness of older people's journeys to hospital appointments; is concerned that many older people have to make such painful journeys; regrets that whether or not an elderly person has to make such a journey is decided by postcode lottery; is proud to support such a campaign; and calls for hospital travel times to be considered when organising appointments and where treatment centres are.

This motion has been signed by a total of 26 MPs.
