West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper is backing the Better Health Care for People with Down’s syndrome campaign, which aims to seek better health care and educational support for people with the condition.
Led by the Down’s Syndrome Association the campaign is focussed on ensuring those with Down’s Syndrome receive regular and effective health surveillance; raise awareness of the specific health needs of people with Down’s syndrome; and acknowledging that it is the most frequently recognised cause of learning disability.
Rosie backed the campaign and signed Early Day Motion 1073 that outlines the purpose of the campaign and the work of DSA to highlight the gaps in care and support for those with Down’s syndrome.
MP Rosie said:
“I welcome the opportunity to give my backing to the Down’s syndrome Association’s campaign by adding my name to this Parliamentary motion.
“The Association is doing great work to raise awareness to improve our understanding of Down’s syndrome so that the health needs of people with this condition have access to the health and care services they require and the support needed.”
