Welcome to Patients Campaigning for Cures

OUR MISSION

Patients Campaigning For Cures (PCFC) is an initiative run by patients for patients. We campaign with leading scientific experts to speed up the arrival of effective treatments and cures.

We work with patients and their families, friends, carers and valued medical professionals who all believe, like us, that medical research should have discovered many more effective treatments and cures by now. We understand one of the main reason's why this has not happened, and what the solution is. We support MPs that are working in particular alongside Britain's foremost human rights defence barrister Michael Mansfield QC - who has endorsed the conditions for historic public scientific debate - so that life-saving evidence can be heard by scientists, the Government and public, in order to change outdated laws and speed up the arrival of effective treatments and cures.

Why we do not ask vets to treat us

  1. The above title represents no more than simple common sense, but it supports the serious fact that the continued use of laboratory animal models of human patients - which still receive the lion's share of research funding - is tantamount to asking our local vets to treat our illnesses, breaking all the guidelines about keeping animal medicines away from children.
