  • Petition to Stop Excess Winter Deaths

    Dan Jarvis MP has called on the Government to take action to tackle excess winter deaths. 

    Excess winter deaths are linked to inadequate measures to protect from cold weather, such as expensive fuel bills and poor insulation, as well as poor planning from public health officials.
    The problem disproportionately affects groups such as the elderly, who are at much greater risk of developing respiratory diseases and dying from dementia during the winter months, and women, who made up 58 per cent of last year’s unnecessary winter deaths.
