Great to see this update initiative for GPs. Remember, you don’t have to smoke to get lung cancer https://bit.ly/2XjRP9i @RuthStraussFdn https://twitter.com/royalmarsdenNHS/status/1437424996977098757

Regrettably my cancer has progressed. Am starting a new line of treatment this week & receiving great care from the team at @GSTTnhs. Unwelcome news but keeping upbeat. Cathy & the kids have been amazing & appreciate all the kind messages. Now need space to focus on treatment.

Delighted that the UK Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre has been granted planning permission.

This will ensure we never forget the tragedy of the Holocaust.

And will educate generations to come about where hatred and racism lead if we don’t stand against it.

Just a few days left to have your say on the consultation on the #ProtectDuty to improve security in public places & help respond to the threat from terrorism. The consultation closes on Friday 2 July. You can find more details at:


Today is the 1st anniversary of Rose’s suicide.
To honour her memory, please take a 30-min online suicide awareness course.
This could help people spot signs which are so often hidden & help save a life.
See the problem.
Say the words.

🔈Landmark commitments for leaseholders🔈

The Government asked CMA to investigate unfair practices like doubling ground rents - which have no place in the housing market.

The @CMAgovUK has made major progress in the pursuit of justice for leaseholders. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/cma-secures-landmark-commitments-for-leaseholders

🚨 At the @G7 in London today, my finance counterparts and I have come to a historic agreement on global tax reform requiring the largest multinational tech giants to pay their fair share of tax in the UK.

👇The thread below explains exactly what this means. #G7UK

Have just completed my cycles of chemo. Has been tough going but recovering steadily. Blessed to have had the love and support of Cathy and the children to help get me through. Huge thanks to the amazing team at @GSTTnhs for their care and kindness throughout treatment.

This afternoon, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Funeral took place at Windsor Castle.

It was a family occasion which recognised His Royal Highness’s military associations and included some unique personal touches, in line with The Duke’s wishes: http://www.royal.uk

A moment of reflection at 3pm, as we held a minutes silence to honour HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh @RoyalFamily

Thank you to our Deputy Lieutenant @LBBexleyRepDLDE , 2 of our MPs Sir @DavidEvennett @JBrokenshire and @LBofBexley Leader @TeresaONeillLBB for joining us

A montage to commemorate the extraordinary life of The Duke of Edinburgh, made unique by its sheer breadth of experience, and the wartime generation he was part of.

With words by the Poet Laureate,
The Patriarchs - An Elegy.

Nothing quite like a short revitalising walk with the sun on your back after a long chemo session. Amazing what a bit of sunshine can do! ☀️😀 #justwhatthedoctorordered

Watching the flow of people in & out of the cancer centre earlier made me think of everyone currently going through the ups & downs of chemo. Drawn to Frank Sinatra’s song 🎶 “When You’re Smiling (#2)... The Whole World Smiles with You” 🎶 Help give them a smile today. 😀 🌍😀

Look out for our ambassadors in #Sidcup on Saturday 18th April. They have lots of goodies to give away to encourage #supportlocalbusinesses. See you there!

Some coronavirus restrictions are being cautiously lifted across England today.

Here’s what you need to know [tap to expand] ⬇️


More than 30 MILLION people across the U.K. have now had the vaccine.

This is a phenomenal achievement - thank you to everyone for coming forward. 🇬🇧

Continue to recover well from my lung surgery and have now moved onto second phase of treatment. Started a course of supplementary ‘adjuvant’ chemo for further assurance. New challenge to get through but good to be belt and braces. 👍

On behalf of the Tessa Jowell Brain Cancer Mission, we are so pleased to announce that 9 NHS brain tumour centres across the UK have been designated as a Tessa Jowell Centre of Excellence, delivering cutting edge science with a human-centred culture of kindness & compassion❤️

The Government is committed to improving public safety & today’s launch of the consultation on a new Protect Duty to strengthen security at public venues is an important further step. Thank you to @FigenMurray for her tireless campaign to see that #MartynsLaw becomes a reality.
