My focus has always been on putting people first. Working for you, I have been fighting for a better health service – bringing forward the radiotherapy centre to Altnagelvin and championing better mental health services locally. For the past two years, I have leading the fight against Tory Welfare Cuts, to find a system that protects the most vulnerable and delivers for the working person.
I stand with public servants who deliver on a daily basis front line services that serve as a life line to many of us. Government attacks on the Northern Ireland Housing Executive and Public Service Pensions may have been tolerated by others, but the SDLP have opposed, picketed and demanded that our public services and our public servants are protected.
In this section you will find my latest efforts to protect people and protect public services.
