When more people are aware of Ovarian Cancer symptoms, more lives are saved.

☎️ 470,000 mental health 999 calls each year.
🚑 Thousands going to A&E in a mental health crisis.
⏳ Some children stuck in A&E for days waiting for a mental health bed.

The Government needs to get a grip of the mental health crisis across our country.

There’s a crisis in GP access and dentistry. People are struggling to get appointments. You can read my speech here https://tinyurl.com/yjtwj5sx

Stephen has to pay £160 for Animal Health Certificate & vaccines for #assistancedog Jodie to travel to an EU country. Here's my interview with @MattChorley on @TimesRadio about why people like Stephen need to regain their freedom to travel @guidedogs https://tinyurl.com/3kp8m6r2

Wirral MP: Urgent plan needed to fix crisis in GP access and dentistry https://www.birkenhead.news/wirral-mp-urgent-plan-needed-to-fix-crisis-in-gp-access-and-dentistry/ @MGreenwoodWW

On national #ArmedForcesDay, I would like to thank members of our armed forces and veterans for their dedication and commitment to protect and serve our country and their preparedness to make the ultimate sacrifice. https://www.armedforcesday.org.uk/

Passport delays are a result of gov't incompetence. So have been in touch with my office about this. The government needs to sort this mess out and make sure that the passport office has the resources it needs to deliver a reliable service. https://tinyurl.com/5uvfhpzy

People are struggling to get GP and dentist appointments. This government is running down our public services. They need to come forward with a plan to tackle this. So many people are suffering https://www.wirralglobe.co.uk/news/20230116.wirral-west-mp-calls-government-fix-gp-access-crisis/

“I was on the picket line this morning…I’ve never known morale so low”

This @RMTUnion member says there’s no “plan in place” for ticket office workers like him and he’s concerned for passenger safety if staff are cut. #bbcqt

Wirral MP highlights costs of travel for those who rely on assistance dogs  https://www.birkenhead.news/wirral-mp-highlights-costs-of-travel-for-those-who-rely-on-assistance-dogs/ @MGreenwoodWW @GDB_official @GuideDogsNW @guidedogs

Stephen has to pay £160 for an Animal Health Certificate & vaccines to his assistance dog Jodie to an EU country. I have raised this issue in Parliament & followed up with a letter to the minister. Gov't must make every effort to resolve this issue. https://tinyurl.com/3drsb7tn

The gov’t should ban #Fracking & underground coal gasification. Instead, they’ve asked the British Geological Survey to advise on scientific evidence on shale gas extraction. Exploring the extraction of fossil fuels is an absurd and irresponsible response to the climate crisis.

I stand with ⁦@RMTunion⁩ workers fighting for pay & conditions and opposing redundancies. Lots of support from passers by.

In Parliament, I just called out the Government's disgusting smear campaign against railway cleaners, rail ticket office staff and the maintenance workers who keep our railways safe.

The Government's cynical role in this dispute is appalling.

Tomorrow, the rail strike will cause chaos for workers, passengers, and schoolchildren.

Tell the Tories to begin urgent talks to avoid the strike before it’s too late.

Wonderful atmosphere at Dane Cottage, Ethelbert Lane, Meols, for the fundraising garden party. Sensational planting! It’s open until 4 , so there’s still time to visit.

The government’s Levelling Up bill fails to deliver on public services and fails to deliver the protection for the green belt that people want to see https://tinyurl.com/yc8fxrx7

Great to meet up with so many familiar faces at Greasby Day this afternoon - including Labour candidate in the local elections Gail Jenkinson. A fabulous afternoon! 🦚🌸🍰🎸with music, stalls & donkey rides!

After 12 years of failure, the Tories have no plan to fix the housing crisis.

Labour would prioritise first time buyers, empower leaseholders and build genuinely affordable homes.

Woodchurch Leisure Centre could be saved after huge campaign https://www.wirralglobe.co.uk/news/20199316.woodchurch-leisure-centre-saved-huge-campaign/?ref=twtrec

We all have a role to play in helping caring to become visible, valued and supported. Thank you to all who are caring for a loved one, family member or neighbour this Carers Week 2022. 👏👏👏#CarersWeek

Great to be able to attend UNISON’s Year of Disabled Workers event. UNISON is working with over 100 organisations to improve the working lives of disabled people by signing up to the Disability Employment Charter. https://www.disabilityemploymentcharter.org/ for more information

We dedicate this win to Colin Watson and Lucy Mackie whose fearless and tireless fight was fundamental 💛

We also dedicate this win to the flaming bright fighters who burned out along the way 💛

And we also dedicate this win to everyone who objected, protested and donated 💛

Thank you to Her Majesty The Queen, the first monarch in British history to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, for her 70 years of service. I hope everyone across Wirral West and beyond has a fantastic Jubilee weekend!

The Government admits disabled people need more support urgently, so it offers a one-off £150 payment. All while they quietly remove disabled people's annual £150 payment through the Warm Home Discount.

This Gov really is all show and no substance – disabled people need both.

It was a real pleasure to welcome children and staff from St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Upton to Parliament earlier this week and to hear about the issues that they are interested in, including climate change, animal welfare and housing. @StJosephU

Well done to all @WoodchurchCofE - congratulations on your wonderful 'life-changing' library 👏👏👏📚https://www.wirralglobe.co.uk/news/20170086.praise-woodchurch-cofe-primarys-life-changing-library/?ref=twtrec

Thank you @MGreenwoodWW for citing in parliament the polling we launched today showing that over half of Brits feel their health as worsened due to the rising cost of living.

We need a cross-government strategy to reduce health inequalities now. #EverythingAffectsHealth
