RNIB is running a campaign to overturn NHS England’s recent decision not to approve Humira and Remicade for the treatment of severe refractory uveitis. No doubt you know that this is a rare condition and that this decision will affect approximately 100 children and 200 adults in England per annum.
This decision will affect people with hard to treat Birdshot Uveitis who fail on the more usual treatments, either because they do not work, stop working or cause unacceptable side effects.
RNIB is now calling on its supporters to take our e-action and send a letter to NHS England urging them to reverse their decision. Birdshot Uveitis Society would urge all members, their families and friends to support this petition. The e-action and template letter is simple and quick to use and can be accessed at:
