Stop Referring Cancer Patients to Debt Collectors.

Stop Referring Cancer Patients to Debt Collectors.

Stop asking Debt Collectors to chase cancer patients. They are going through one of the most difficult periods of their lives. If they are having problems paying their debt - theres probably a good reason. A different way must be found.

Why is this important?

The Irish Cancer Society say that they are getting getting letters, threatening phone calls, threats that their name will be made public if they don't the fees. This is deeply distressing and inhumane.

Reasons for signing

  • Because people should not have to try to find money they don't have when they're possibly fighting for their lives .....even Margaret Thatcher who took the milk from schoolkids as a cost saving exercise wouldn't charge ANY patients fees.... she knew that such cruelty was a step too far
