    There is a petition to call for more research funding & the education of health professions in Britain.

    It's on change.com & directed towards the Prime Minister David Cameron.

    Me too.
    Why doesn't anyone seem to know about this @Sasha only asking, because you know so much more about the forum.

    We've seen a lot of petitions popping up in the UK on this topic - but there's often no campaign behind them to promote them widely or to distinguish them from all the others that have gone before, and it's not always clear that they've been well thought-through or that they have a reasonable chance of being acted on by their target.

    Not saying that that's the case with this one - just that in general, not every petition will get a lot of support for these kinds of reason.

    Is this petition actually active? I have just tried to sign and share it and added a comment, but it doesn't appear to register.
