Dementia UK ‘Fix the Funding’ campaign goes to parliament 

33 MP’s have attended an event in parliament to hear about Dementia UK’s ‘Fix the Funding’ campaign. They heard from people affected by dementia, as well as Chief Admiral Nurse and Dementia UK CEO Hilda Hayo and her Admiral Nursing colleagues, about why the NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) funding process needs to be reviewed. 

Dementia UK launched ‘Fix the Funding’ in 2023 to call for fairer care for families affected by dementia who face barriers within the CHC process which prevent them from accessing vital funds to support their care requirements.  

MP’s attending the parliamentary event included: Elliot Colburn (Conservative MP for Carshalton and Wallington and vice-chair of the APPG on Dementia), Mims Davies (Conservative, Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work), Edward Argar (Conservative, Minister for Prisons, Parole and Probation), Justin Madders (Labour MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston and Shadow Minister for Business, Employment Rights and Levelling Up), Sir Stephen Timms (Labour MP for East Ham), Munira Wilson (Liberal Democrat MP for Twickenham), Gareth Thomas (Conservative MP for Harrow West), Louie French (Conservative MP for Old Bexley and Sidcup), Damian Green (Conservative MP for Ashford, Kent) and Robert Buckland (Conservative MP for Swindon South).
