This week the Conservatives voted through the Health and Care Bill. This is the wrong Bill at the wrong time; it is an unnecessary distraction that won’t fix the crisis in our NHS, which has been created by over a decade of Tory cuts.

Measures in the Bill will let private companies have a say in the running of our NHS and force the poorest to sell their homes to pay for social care costs.

I know many constituents were concerned about this Bill and I voted against these measures alongside my Labour colleagues.
