Shameem Ramzan started this petition to NHS and

Medicines derived from animal products Used in the NHS. 

Numerous medicines contain ingredients derived from animals, usually pigs or cows. These include:

• Heparin type medicines to prevent or treat blood clots

• Some Insulins


• Pancreatic enzyme supplements
 • MMR vaxPRO®
   (a type of Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccine)

 • Treatments to help the lungs of pre-term babies develop

•  Gelatin capsules


This may have implications for some patients e.g. Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, vegetarians and vegans.

Please sign this petition to help change that. There’s are alternatives that are suitable for everyone. We just need to get the NHS to use them. 

This petition is on behalf of a friend who is currently having treatment on the NHS. 

Many Thanks
