Perhaps like Clare you’re a Hep C patient who had to wait to access treatment because sofosbuvir is still rationed on the NHS because of the cost? Maybe like Carolyn you’re a breast cancer patient who had to fundraise for treatment because it’s priced off the NHS? Or maybe your story involves one of the many other drugs which aren’t available or are restricted on our health service because the cost is too high.
Just Treatment is coordinated by a group of patients who have been directly impacted by the high cost of treatment. Together we’re campaigning to bring down drug prices and ensure access to medicines for all.
Being a patient leader is a varied role. It could mean being involved in anything from working with other leaders to design Just Treatment's campaigns, to speaking at events and in the press, meeting decision-makers, organising get-togethers, and blogging and spreading the word about Just Treatment. You’ll get ongoing support, training and advice as well as the opportunity to be part of a group who are passionate about improving access to treatment by bringing down the cost of drugs.
If this sounds like you, and you’d like to find out more about what we’re doing and are interested in using some of your time to campaign with us, please apply below by telling us a bit about you.
