Sickle cell disease is the fastest growing genetic disorder in the UK and we need more Black blood donors, who are more likely to have the blood type which is vital to treatment. I urge anyone eligible to #GiveBlood to save and improve more lives.
A record 250 donations are now needed every day to treat people with sickle cell. We鈥檙e urgently calling for more donors of Black heritage to come forward as ethnically matched blood provides the best treatment. Find out more 鉃★笍 bit.ly/3ymwzPP #InOurBlood

It was great to speak to Colchester Sixth Form College politics students about my role as Colchester's Member of Parliament and have the opportunity to answer some of their very insightful and detailed questions. Some future politicians in the making perhaps!

Last visit of the day to the Swindon Integrated Care Alliance Coordination Centre to see how patients needs are met quicker. Centres like this bring together staff from across the whole health and care system, removing boundaries so patients access faster care when they need it.

Visits like this are valuable and I am very grateful to @GreatOrmondSt for accommodating me and the team today. You can learn about issues, challenges and opportunities by reading submissions at @DHSCgovuk but there is nothing like speaking with clinicians, patients and carers.
