Liz takes part in dementia debate
The debate was passionate and constructive. MPs from all the different political parties talked about the problems faced by people with dementia and their relatives, and what needs to be done to improve diagnosis rates, medical research, care services and support for families in future.
Many of my colleagues gave moving speeches about their personal experiences. I summed up the debate as Labour’s Shadow Minister for Care and Older People; you can read my speech here.
I have also written about the debate in the Leicester Mercury – you can read the article here.
