The government has been in constant change and turmoil these last few weeks with major consequences for this country’s future. All political parties have had resignations galore amidst in- fighting, back stabbing and some very unseemly behaviour from those who ought to know better.
It seems remarkable that our Rother Valley MP Kevin Barron has managed to stay quiet about all these issues, yet he has.
All I hear about him is from the They Work For You site which keeps us informed that he is still our MP and does now and then ask a question in the House of Commons. Unsurprisingly, the only questions he asks are those that are related to companies and businesses in the health services of which he has a personal vested interest (not to do with his own health, that is)
So in case you wondered if he had actually resigned and gone to physically live in cloud cuckoo land forever, here is his latest bit of “work for you”.
Written Answers – Department of Health: Health Education (11 Jul 2016)
Kevin Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment
he has made of the (a) extent of the implementation of the Making Every
Contact Count initiative by clinical commissioning groups and local
authorities and (b) adequacy of training provided to staff to equip them
to provide consistent self-care messages during consultations; and if he
will make a statement.
nb: I heard on the Twitter grapevine that our Kevin is also busy with HS2 matters. Quite understandable, of course. No one wants high speed trains thundering past their house, do they.
