This week the Government launched the pilot of their 'test, track and trace' strategy in the Isle of Wight. At his departmental questions in the chamber, I asked the Health Secretary how this programme will work in reality and how his department plans to roll out it out across the country.
Over the last few weeks I have spoken to many concerned parents and teachers from across the constituency who have voiced their nervousness regarding the impact of reopening schools on the spread of COVID-19.
At the Health and Social Care committee last week, I had the opportunity to talk with Gill Walton, CEO of the Royal College of Midwives, about the staffing of maternity wards and access to pain relief during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Firstly, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank those of you who joined my members’ Zoom call last week. Being able to keep in touch during these difficult times is important and it was great to be able to answer your questions.
Following conversations with many public sector workers across the constituency, I today asked the Cabinet Secretary to confirm that the Government will continue to engage with unions in light of any changes to the lockdown being announced.
