Two current PDA petitions - please sign, share and spread the word!
  • "Commission PDA at CAMHS"
    https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/commission-p-d-a-at-c-a-h-m-s

    "Raise Awareness and Understanding of PDA Among Health Care Professionals"

    3,000 Signatures ! Please keep spreading the word to reach the first goal of ten thousand signatures.
  • The first one's only at 582 signatures and TBH is the most important one of the two, because it's about the diagnosis of PDA, whereas the second one is about awareness. Many are already aware but are simply refusing to recognise and diagnose.

    It's extremely frustrating that there are 10,0O0 followers on the PDA Society FB page and in comparison so few signatures . It's not for the lack of trying by the PDA Society and others . Both Petitions are important in their own right .

    I still believe if enough people approach their MP / MSP there will be questions asked in Parliament .

    Until you live with a PDAer you don't understand or appreciate the complexity of the issues .

  • Wow, that is a huge discrepancy. Come on peeps, we can do better than that! Are people beaten into submission! NO WE ARE NOT! **== (just imagine it's a British flag!) If everyone that was following on FB signed and shared it would move mountains. Why the apathy!
