Promoting better medical services for adults with Cerebral Palsy

Help #StampOutTheGap: Care Parity for CP

Adults with CP are treated like second class citizens when it comes to healthcare. We are asking the Government to ‘stamp out’ healthcare inequality and conduct a review into the care of adults with CP. We want the 2019 NICE guidelines adopted and put into practice across the NHS to improve the lives of the 130,000 UK adults living with Cerebral Palsy. In short, Care Parity for CP.

ARE ADULTS WITH CEREBRAL PALSY SECOND CLASS CITIZENS?

To coincide with World Cerebral Palsy Day, six world class athletes with Cerebral Palsy have lent their images to a new set of mock ‘Second Class Stamps’ to raise awareness of how the 130,000 adults with CP are treated like ‘Second Class Citizens’ when it comes to healthcare. Unlike adults with other lifelong health conditions, joined-up healthcare stops at the age of 18 for people with CP.
