signatureIf you’re a UK citizen, and are concerned about those people who have undiagnosed coeliac disease, then please consider signing the petition now available via the 10 Downing Street site.

It is asking ‘the Prime Minister to find the half million people in the UK at risk of serious damage to their health from undiagnosed coeliac disease by including a target for diagnosis in the Quality and Outcomes Framework of the GP contract’.

You know what they say: you get what you measure. If doctors have a target to meet, then they might have testing for coeliac disease higher up on their agenda … it works for infant vaccinations!

Signing the petition is easy. You do it online, here:

Then they’ll send you an email to confirm that you are a real person; click the link in the email and you’re done.

Go on – and have a look at the other petitions online while you’re there. Interesting!
