It involves approaching charities which deal with medical conditions/disabilities and asking them what their stance is on the Green Paper. This is a quote from the email:
Persuading disability charities to speak out against the threat to disability benefits is absolutely crucial. Unless leading agencies like Mind, Arthritis Care and the MS Society are prepared to openly oppose these proposals it will be very difficult to halt them. The government will be able to argue that they consulted with 'stakeholder' organisations and they supported the green paper.
So whether charities are swayed by the strength of your arguments or alarmed by the prospect of losing members who feel abandoned by them, it's vital that they commit themselves to defending AA and DLA. So far only RNIB has been courageous enough to risk the wrath of six secretaries of state rather than desert its members.
So what we're going to suggest you do today is to get in touch with a local or national disability organisation, preferably one that deals with a condition that affects you or someone you care for.
As things are quite informal here on this forum, I'm wondering whether this is the place to ask the mods what HMSA's official stance is on the Green Paper and whether there will be a press release or other official statement published. And what, if any, action HMSA as an organisation is going to take?
