Thank you to everyone who joined our NHS 70th birthday party for cream teas and cake at St Chads in Whitleigh yesterday lunchtime. It was fantastic to hear people share their stories of why the NHS means so much to them. Lots of people around Whitleigh Green signed our birthday card too.

The NHS is one of our most precious assets, and Labour’s finest achievement. I will continue to fight against creeping privatisation, and continue to make the case that we need it properly funded. It’s why we need a Labour Government, and a Labour MP here.

Thank you to neighbouring Labour MP Luke Pollard for supporting our event, and to all the wonderful volunteers that helped out.
