Questions to ask if a campaigner contacts you ahead of the General Election 2024 

Here you’ll find a list of questions to ask candidates and campaigns ahead of the General Election 2024 about the challenges faced by the brain tumour community. 

Ahead of the General Election 2024, you may be visited by campaigners from different political parties campaigning for particular candidates in your area. They may also phone you about the General Election 2024. This is a great opportunity to ask them about their views on the challenges faced by people with a brain tumour in your area.

This is also a great opportunity to share your story, which can help illustrate the true impact a brain tumour diagnosis can have. 

If lots of people in a candidate’s constituency ask questions about brain tumours or share their own experience of brain tumours, it will show candidates how important this issue is to people who might potentially vote for them. 

You might be contacted by candidates’ campaigners and supporters, instead of the candidate themselves. Don’t let this discourage you as it’s still a valuable opportunity to highlight the challenges faced by the brain tumour community which will then be passed on to the candidate. The campaigner might not know full answers to the questions, so it can be worth asking for a call back or a visit from the candidate to discuss it further.

Download a list of questions in handy PDF format

It can be difficult to remember what to ask if someone comes to your door or phones you unexpectedly. So, we’ve created a handy PDF version of these questions that you can have it available if you’re contacted by candidates or their campaigners.

It may also be useful to have our General Election 2024 key messages to hand in case they ask follow up questions.   

You don’t need to ask all these questions, so it’s good to think about what’s most important to you and relevant to your experiences. Feel free to also think of your own questions based on your local experience with local healthcare providers too.
