Weekly Update: 19th April 2024

Some personal news this week.

Following surgery on my leg last November, I received a melanoma diagnosis before Christmas and recently had a second operation as part of a preventative treatment plan.

This means that as Parliament returns this week after the Easter break, I will be continuing my recovery at home in Bristol, ahead of further potential treatment.

The care I have received has been fantastic, and I’m very grateful to NHS staff for their work, I want to express my thanks to the teams at my GP practice, Southmead Hospital, and the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

I’ve also found it very helpful speaking to the team at Melanoma Focus, who have provided useful information and guidance about this condition.

I look forward to working with them in the future, as they continue their important work in researching and raising awareness of this type of skin cancer.

While I’m away from Westminster, my constituency office will continue to function as normal and I have secured a proxy vote for Parliament.

This means I will continue to vote on all the issues that matter to Bristol South constituents in the House of Commons, I look forward to be doing this in person again soon.
