Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, has pledged to continue the fight, alongside Arthritis Research UK, for the thousands of local people living every day with the pain of arthritis.
“In Cheshire West and Chester alone almost a third of the population are living with the most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis of the knee, with many more living with other forms of the condition. The pain, fatigue and lack of mobility prevents millions of people doing simple tasks such as making a cup of tea or walking to the shops.
“This is why I have joined forces with Arthritis Research UK and agreed to be an Arthritis Champion for the thousands of local people living with the pain of arthritis. We need to put the issues that people with arthritis face at the forefront of the new Parliament’s agenda, and work to transform services for the better.”
