Petition to end disability from hip impingement with life changing operation funded by NHS

Hip impingement is a rectifiable condition that affects young adults. This condition results in an inability to walk, stand and even sit, without considerable and frequently intolerable pain and therefore affects every aspect of a person's life. Consequently young adults, with this condition, suddenly lose their careers, their ability to look after their families and any sporting activities they enjoyed. If the CCGS of North Yorkshire, East Midlands and the few other counties, would fund the hip arthroscopy operation, then many young adults would be able to resume a normal life again, contributing to society. Funding is available in many neighbouring counties for hip arthroscopy, at a relatively small cost, which makes hip impingement one of the postcode lottery treatments. Hip impingement is an increasingly common diagnosis and people affected are currently estimated to be 1 in 15. Please sign, as this could turn out to affect your sibling, child, colleague at work, friend in the pub... you. These people just disappear from life needlessly, help bring them back by petitioning for all counties CCGs to fund hip arthroscopy for hip impingement on the NHS. Please help by signing, thank you.
