The Prime Minister recently announced the Government’s intention to provide the NHS with an additional £20.5 billion by 2023/24; this is the largest, longest funding settlement in the history of the NHS. This landmark settlement investment to help secure the long term future of our NHS is extremely welcome, and I hope constituents agree it

Immigration and the NHS

I welcome the commitment of the Government to building a single, global immigration system which considers people on skills, rather than nationality. When people voted to leave the EU, they did so in the knowledge that the free movement system imposed by the EU would end. The Government is clear that this means continued work

I pay tribute to the hard work and dedication of Anthony Nolan in supporting stem cell transplant patients and their families.

Childhood obesity

With nearly a third of children aged two to fifteen overweight or obese, this is an important issue to tackle, and one which I have personally raised in Parliament. It is an issue that afflicts a disproportionate number of local children. I am delighted that the Government has launched a far-reaching plan to curb childhood
