Delighted to have been appointed as Shadow Health & Social Care Secretary. This year the NHS saved my life and staff across health and social care are getting us through the worst pandemic in living memory. Labour created the NHS. We’ll make it fit for the future.

A fantastic 10.3% swing to Labour in the Conservative heartland of Old Bexley and Sidcup. If replicated at a general election Labour would be within reach of forming a majority government.

This woman is made of steel. A reforming minister, a formidable parliamentarian and a great friend. The courage that she has shown throughout her career is truly an example to us all. We will miss you in the Commons so much @margarethodge.

I wrote a thing. "Matt Hancock’s landlord’s contract of £40m is also pretty generous, considering that the crisis funding for all adult and child victims of domestic and sexual abuse in the country through the pandemic, when abuse soared, was only £76m." independent.co.uk/voices/mat…

Getting out the vote in Marine Ward, Worthing for @vicki4labour with the awesome @BeccyCooper4Lab. If Labour win this, the Tories would lose control of the Council.

The UK Government is sitting on the sidelines and failing to show the global leadership we need on climate change and trade. Me getting straight into my new job at my first International Trade Questions👇

📺 WATCH: We've done it! After four years of campaigning for greater protection for retail workers who are facing increasing & unacceptable levels of violence and abuse. The news that the Govt have accepted the need for a change in law shows what happens when we work together.

Today’s social care White Paper isn’t fixing the crisis in social care, let alone real social care reform. And it won’t stop ordinary people having to sell their homes to pay for their care either. It’s just a tax rise to protect the homes of the wealthiest.
