1.The Government to recognise the 1st week of November as National CRPS Awareness Week.
2.The DoH to e-mail every trust, hospital, surgery and clinic in the country informing them of the existence of CRPS, it’s symptoms, the 3 treatments which must never be used and that eventually all medical professionals will be required to attend a CRPS Course. They have twice refused my request to do this even though on the second occasion I offer to pay the cost from my benefits
3.The DoH to form an office of CRPS Internet Liaison and Research staffed by at least 3 medically trained CRPS sufferers to make contact with specialist centres around the world, to Collect, Collate, Exchange and Disseminate CRPS Papers so that he UK becomes the leading CRPS information centre in the World.
4.The DWP to recognize that CRPS is a permanent debilitating incurable condition that can only be assessed by a qualified Doctor who has received training in the symptoms of CRPS by attending an approved course and can demonstrate extensive knowledge of the risks both mental and physical to the sufferer. That all benefit payments must continue uninterrupted until their contractors have sufficient doctors to do so.
5.The NHS be required to set up a £40 million CRPS fund from there Annual Budget
£10 million to be spent on teaching CRPS at all medicals schools and also in all hospitals until every existing medical professional knows the symptoms and how to diagnose CRPS under a teaching regime to be formatted by Professor McCabe and her colleagues. Each Hospital to form 2 multi-disciplinary CRPS teams as per the NHS Choices web page.
£10 million to be spent on sending newly qualified doctors abroad to receive specialist training until every hospital has at least one CRPS specialist.
£10 million to be spent on converting existing unoccupied buildings and wards into a dedicated CRPS Treatment Centre with both in and outpatient facilities staffed and equipped to a plan drawn up by Professor McCabe and her colleagues so patients can attend with the least risk to themselves due to extended travelling or long waiting lists.
Any remaining funds from the above 3 to be added to the following year’s £10 million research fund.
To do it we need as many MP’s and Lords as possible to submit a private members ballot bill, we need to flood the ballot box so at least one of the 10 picked is ours.
If so make your New Years Resolution to contact your MP, to ask family and friends wherever they live to contact theirs. To contact one celebrity and ask them to help raise awareness
