We were delighted to be asked by our friends at Tendo Consulting to help with work on the End Our Pain campaign , which is a Campaign to Legalise Medical Cannabis. We started by moving their existing campaign website onto WordPress. The new site was updated and an “Email Your MP” functionality was put into place. This “Email Your MP” functionality was developed by us to help people lobby their MP directly.
You may have seen a lot of coverage (in the Mail on Sunday, across the BBC and elsewhere) about Alfie Dingley. Alfie suffers from severe epilepsy needs medical cannabis to control his epilepsy. The news coverage and Social Media support from a huge range of people including Patrick Stewart – saw THOUSANDS email their MP. Many thousands more signed the End Our Pain petition.
Following that lobbying, on Tuesday 19th June 6 Year Old Alfie Dingley became the first person to benefit from a long term special licence to access medical cannabis in the UK. The Home Secretary also announced that the Government will review more general access to medical cannabis.
The Campaign to legalise medical cannabis continues on behalf of patients fighting to get a licence to use medical cannabis. Such as Sophia Gibson who suffers from severe epilepsy and is currently on life support. The End Our Pain team continues to monitor and assess that the medical cannabis expert panel is fit for purpose. It continues to fight for patients so that they can receive the medication that they desperately need. Sign the petition and help them now.
