Pratchett heads dementia campaign

26th November 2008

Best-selling author Terry Pratchett has handed in a petition to 10 Downing Street calling for an urgent increase in funds for dementia research.

The petition, part of a campaign backed by more than 100 top scientists, was signed by 20,000 people and describes current level of funding as "appalling". The writer behind the Discworld series, who has a rare form of Alzheimer's disease this year, also had talks with Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Health Minister Phil Hope in a frank hour-long meeting.
