On #WorldCancerDay my thoughts are with all my constituents and their families who are battling cancer. I will continue to raise concerns about delays in treatment and diagnosis. If you need support coping with cancer @macmillancancer are there to help, ring 0808 808 00 00.
If you are worried about any signs for #BreastCancer, contact your GP. While most changes won’t be breast cancer, we know that the sooner it’s diagnosed, the more likely treatment is to be successful. Find out what to look for with @BreastCancerNow’s TLC: https://bit.ly/3byOacK
Today is Holocaust Memorial Day. We remember the six million Jewish men, women and children murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators, all victims of Nazi persecution and all victims of subsequent genocides. #HMD2021 #HolocaustMemorialDay #LightTheDarkness
Whatever you're up to this festive period, UK service personnel are still working across the globe to keep our nation safe.

I wanted to support #WorldStrokeDay. Important information from @TheStrokeAssoc
Stroke is a life-threatening condition. With more parts of the UK seeing tighter restrictions, this #WorldStrokeDay we want to highlight the importance recognising the signs and symptoms of a stroke and to call 999.
I am absolutely made up with Daniel Norton’s public artwork gift to Widnes, to signify how important Remembrance is to our area and to mark the start of the #PoppyAppeal in Widnes. Thanks to Widnes RBL, @DerekTwiggMP, @ArtilleryWidnes, @AlisonMowlem& @HaltonBC for supporting idea

I don’t normally recommend books but this is a beautifully written and thought provoking book. If you care about our countryside, nature and high welfare farming you will enjoy it. I hope many MP colleagues will read it. @herdyshepherd1

9000 Thomas Cook workers failed by bad bosses and the government. The Official Receiver needs to fast track the wages the workers are owed #ThomasCookCollapse #PayUpNow
This is a fantastic project that will have such a positive impact on Runcorn Town Centre. The Unlock Runcorn team have done a great job, it is a community driven project.
There are huge hopes for the reopened waterway's potential impact on #Runcorn town centre. @HaltonBC @MetroMayorSteve @LpoolCityRegion @DerekTwiggMP @paulinesinnott @rob_polhill
Asda bosses are threatening their hard-working, loyal staff with the sack if they don’t agree to a punishing new contract.
Asda can afford to treat its dedicated workforce better than this. #AsdaRespectYourWorkers

It is fantastic news that Widnes Vikings have been saved. I am delighted and relieved. It could not have happened without the community coming together in the way it did. I congratulate all the people who worked so hard to make it happen. #RiseAgain @WidnesRL

Yes, great to hear @MetroMayorSteve strong commitment to bringing investment in to Halton and in particular, the importance of Apprenticeships and the @UnlockRuncorn project
Great to welcome @MetroMayorSteve to @HaltonCLP
Constituency meeting again last night as guest speaker.
Gave a good overview of progress being made, including
the £35 million city region investment in Halton and how
a Labour govt would deliver real devolution for local govt.
Consultation is when your views are considered and impact a decision. 💥

Thank you to @PoppyLegion @ArtilleryWidnes for a lovely morning celebrating our achievements throughout the year. Also lovely to see some past pupils @StsPnP_ExArt @runcornworld @cllreddourley @DerekTwiggMP
Fantastic views from high up on the Runcorn-Widnes Bridge today despite a little snow and sleet. No doubt why the maintenance work is so essential. @Balvac_SJB @HaltonBC
.@stu_turton Hi Stuart. I saw your article in the Guardian about our hometown, Widnes and I wrote you a response. Thanks.
Read what I had to say about disabled people in Halton being up to £300 worse off when they move onto #UniversalCredit. https://haltoncab.org.uk/2018/10/30/disabled-people-in-widnes-and-runcorn-can-be-more-than-300-a-month-worse-off-under-universal-credit/
Great to hear that Vicky Park in Widnes has been ranked in the top five Green Flag sites in the recent people’s vote of 1,800 sites. The only one in Cheshire & North West. Well done to all who voted & those who help maintain the Park all year round. #investInPublicParks
Local community initiative, volunteers from across Widnes
And chance of a share?
This has been an issue with a number of cases I have taken up on behalf of constituents. Well done to @mencap_charity
Brilliant news! 🎉
The Government says all #Health professionals need #LearningDisability training. It is what we have been campaigning for! 🙌
But it is vital that people with a learning disability are a part of this.
💬 Hear from #TreatMeWell campaigner Michelle:
Great to meet Halton Care Workers this morning on behalf of @DerekTwiggMP Really informative and very interesting discussion, led by the Care Workers who clearly care deeply and have huge compassion for the people they look after. #DignityinSocialCare https://twitter.com/StandUpForSC/status/1020268928424206336
Thanks to all the Care Workers who shared their opinions today, now time for real change @Paulabarker1 @MikeAmesbury @DerekTwiggMP @RobPolhill @NorthWestUNISON @CllrAndreaWall
My article in today’s @timesredbox on Nye Bevan’s tense negotiations with the British Medical Association: his vision and strategy delivered the National Health Service on 5th July 1948 as he persuaded doctors to join in numbers: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/ea7d5ba4-7d2b-11e8-a645-f0478472c67b https://twitter.com/timesredbox/status/1013689932555194369
Referendum, tense talks and the risk of no deal... sound familiar? @NickTorfaenMP on how Bevan delivered the NHS http://bit.ly/2KEnbMs
Why should this be a surprise! I have been raising the difficulty of securing an appointment with your GP of choice for many years in Parliament. A matter many constituents have spoken to me about. #NHS70 @MikeAmesbury http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-44643607
I heard of more problems this morning in my constituency concerning the shortage of GP’s and difficulties in recruiting. In 2015 I warned the Government about the GP crisis in this speech https://goo.gl/1LR92K
An excellent example of a local manufacturer employing local people. We have great businesses and workforce here in Halton.#halton @MikeAmesbury @MetroMayorSteve
