Hi,

We are hoping to launch the associated petition next Monday.

Hi Andy,

I'm a bit confused about point 3) Ulcerative Colitis patients should be given access to disabled toilets/RADAR keys. Don't we already have access to a RADAR key? I got mine by following information posted on the NACC website. I'm now wondering if I did something wrong by getting it!

Regards
Jen

Hi,

Nothing wrong - just that it isn't routinely offered to people. I firmly believe that it is part of the duty of care of the government to ensure everyone with colitis has access to disabled toilets. It should be offered to people rather than them having to ask.

Thanks for the explanation and I agree, it should have been offered to me rather than me goes years without knowing about it.

Hi Andy,

Any response from Downing St on this? I really hope they took the time to consider it.

Hi,

None yet. Usually the longer the better - as it means they are actually looking into things.
