Letter to Gillian Merron

APPG for Involuntary Tranquilliser Addiction

Gillian Merron MP
Department of Health

20 October 2009

Dear Gillian,

I would like to thank you on behalf of the APPGITA for your visit to the Oldham tranquilliser clinic and for the encouragement you gave to the patients and staff. I would like to meet with you to discuss the current review of Department of Health policy on addiction to prescription drugs. Involuntary tranquilliser addiction is a large part of the subject matter under review. This APPG was set up to deal specifically with the problem of ITA and we have access to experience and expertise on this subject.

Our campaign has been for specialist withdrawal clinics and services to be provided to deal with this problem and provide people with the opportunity to become drug free. I would like to be consulted at the political level on this subject and to be included in all consultations.

Kind Regards,
Jim Dobbin MP.

c.c.Phil Woolas MP.
