Royal Blind Rights Pledge

Royal Blind Rights Pledge Logo

 

  • We want political parties to pledge continued access to sight-saving treatments whatever the outcome of Brexit

  • We ask parties to pledge an immigration system which means we can recruit the specialist healthcare staff we need to support people with sight loss.

  • Two thirds of people with sight loss of working age aren’t in work. We want candidates to pledge more investment for schemes which support people of working age with sight loss into employment.

  • A wide range of rights for disabled people was established in EU Law during UK membership. We want political parties to pledge to protect the human rights of people with sight loss whatever the outcome of Brexit.

I’m backing the Royal Blind Rights Pledge to:

  • Guarantee the rights of patients to access sight loss medicines

  • Promote rights to work for people with sight loss

  • Protect patient rights for people with sight loss by ensuring health and social care services can recruit the specialist staff they need.

  • Protect the human rights of people with sight loss in the UK which have been established in EU Law.
