Would you please consider signing these petitions?

Here are two petitions that readers in the UK might wish to sign. They both deal with the thorny issue of Continuing Healthcare funding (CHC). CHC can be granted to people who have serious, complex health problems and it means that the National Health Service (NHS) pays for their care.

The decision in each individual case is taken locally and it is clear that a 'postcode lottery' exists. People in some areas are much more likely to be funded in this way than people in other areas.

These petitions address this issue:
