Message to ask people to write to their MP to attend the APPG on Eye Health and Visual Impairment capacity inquiry report launch reception

1. Sending the message in an email

Email subject line: Act now to stop people losing sight

The NHS eye care system is currently failing patients, service provision is not keeping pace with demand, meaning that hospitals are delaying and cancelling appointments, resulting in people losing sight.

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Eye Health and Visual Impairment (APPG) held an inquiry in to this problem and on June 6 will release its findings at a report launch event.

Ask your MP to attend the event and help to stop people losing sight due to delayed and cancelled appointments. You can either use the template letter attached and send it to your MP or take RNIB’s simple online action which will send the letter to your MP for you.
