Ravenscroft Update

As I have often said, I have always been against the proposed relocation of Ravenscroft Medical Centre to Finchley Memorial Hospital. I have met with the CCG and other parties on multiple occasions to lobby against the proposals and have committed to taking the matter to Health Ministers. 

NHS agrees deal for cystic fibrosis drugs

Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, has today announced that the NHS has secured a definitive agreement with Vertex Pharmaceuticals to make available all three of their UK-licensed cystic fibrosis medicines. This means that NHS patients will now have full access to Orkambi, Symkevi and Kalydeco.

I have always said, despite campaigning and voting to remain in the European Union, that the referendum result should be respected. Our democracy is precious, and to ignore the referendum because we don’t like it would do serious damage to that democracy.

The Queens Speech 2019

Monday brought about the first Queen’s Speech in over two years, ending the longest parliament session in nearly 400 years. The State Opening of Parliament allows for the Government to set out the programme of legislation that it intends to pursue in the forthcoming parliamentary session.
