    We are encouraging branches and supporters to organise local protest marches on Friday 17 November to highlight the campaign for access to Alzheimer’s drugs.

    We know there is a huge appetite among our membership to take part in marches in their local areas.

    More information can be found at: http://www.alzheimers.org.uk/News_and_campaigns/Campaigning/accesstodrugs.htm

    So join the fight: contact your local branch of the Society to find out where they are marching on 17 November and join them.

    Also let us know about any activities that you will be involved in so we can publicise them on the web.

    Hands off Dementia drugs

    Hi Sarah,

    I think most people are now getting geared up to start the protest marches and campaigns again. We are all disgusted in NICE, but it is very hard to accept that this is happenening in this country let alone anywhere else.
    We have spoken to many reporters in the last week and another one is coming tomorrow, because they want to find out what its like living with Dementia and wondering, what will happen in the future when a person is diagnosed and then told they can not have the medication. I am very lucky that I am getting this medication and I can not understand any so called democratic government, stopping a patient who is ill from having treatment. We would be taken to court if we had an animal and it was treated this way.

    Lets all go and tell them what we think.

    Regards

    kenc
