Letter from Gareth Thomas MP, Member of Parliament for Harrow West to Jeremy Hunt MP, Secretary of State for Health on the risks faced by community pharmacies

Dear Jeremy,

I am writing regarding the recent announcement that community pharmacies will face a 12% cut on current funding levels for the rest of this financial year, and a 7.4% cut on current levels the year after.

As you know, considerable concern has been raised by pharmacists and many of their customers and service users, about the likely impact of these cuts.

The Government’s own estimate suggests that as many as 1 in 4 pharmacies are at risk of closure as a result of these cuts. In Harrow, 15 community pharmacies will be significantly hit by this cut, based on an analysis of their dispensing rates carried out by the House of Commons Library. The Middlesex Group of LPCs have advised me that they believe a further 8 pharmacies will also be severely impacted and may be at risk of closure.

Gareth Thomas MP has joined with the members of the retail union Usdaw to call for an end to abuse in the workplace. As part of the ‘Freedom From Fear Campaign’, which seeks to prevent violence, threats and abuse directed at retail staff, Usdaw members are highlighting the problems faced by staff during Respect for Shopworkers Week, which runs from 14 to 20 November.

Gareth Thomas, Labour MP for Harrow West says: "Too often retail employees are confronted with violence, threats and abuse whilst serving the public. It is really important we stand together and ask people to keep their cool and respect shopworkers, especially as we approach the busy Christmas shopping period.

I am pleased to join Teresa Pearce, Kate Hollern and Jim McMahon in the Shadow DCLG team with responsibility for local government.

I’m keen to play my part in supporting Labour Councillors defending vital local public services from yet more funding cuts. I’m also keen to begin to explore what a new Labour vision for local government might look like; one that recognises the move, in a very British way, towards a more federal United Kingdom, which champions England’s talents in our cities, boroughs and counties, but which also gives local people more power to shape their communities in the way they think best.

Published on behalf of Rose Worley, a constituent from the 70/30 campaign.

At a recent local surgery, I met with an ambassador for 70/30, a local grassroots campaign that’s building support for a primary prevention approach to tackle child maltreatment in Harrow.

As suggested by the name, the 70/30 campaign wants to show how we could reduce child abuse by at least 70% by 2030 in the United Kingdom. This can be achieved through a proper strategy which puts primary prevention as the leading ideology.

Can we cut child maltreatment by 70% by the year 2030?

Letter to the TfL Commissioner regarding Harrow on the Hill Station on the 8th July 2016:

 

Re: Harrow-on-the-Hill station

I am concerned by the reports I have had of Transport for London’s current plans for six 20-storey tower blocks of flats at Harrow-on-the-Hill station.

As yet, there has been no public consultation or indeed any confirmation as to when such consultation might begin. Such a massive development will obviously be of considerable interest to my constituents who have seen up to a 60% increase in the cost of their commute into central London over the last eight years.
