Write to your councillor

In April 2013 local authorities will take responsibility for public health. This includes responsibility for improving awareness about hepatitis C and finding the tens of thousands of people who are living with the virus but are undiagnosed.
Please write to your local councillor to let them know what hepatitis C is and that it is a critical but often overlooked area of public health which must be addressed.
It will only take a few minutes to write a letter and it will have a significant impact.
You can write to your councillor by taking the following 3 easy steps:

  1. Find out your MPs’ contact details by typing in your postcode here
  2. Download our ‘draft councillor letter’ here
  3. Personalise the letter by adding:
    • Your name and address
    • The name and address of your MP
    • Your personal experiences

Please let us know how you get on and send us a copy of your councillor’s response (email becky.hug@hepctrust.org.uk or send it to Becky Hug, Policy and Parliamentary Adviser, The Hepatitis C Trust, 27 Crosby Row, London, SE1 3YD).
Thank you. Your action will make a real difference.
