MacMillan Cancer Patient Experience Event

Clive was happy to support MacMillan Nurses campaign to improve the experience of cancer patients. Clive recently attended a drop in session on cancer patient experience in London.

Currently 5,800 people approximately are living with or beyond cancer in the area of Greenwich.  It is expected that by 2030 this number will increase to 10,800.  “These are very sobering statistics” explains Clive, “which is why I am so pleased to work with people like MacMillan who do so much to work with the patient to show them that they do not have to fight this disease on their own.  They are a truly wonderful organisation.”

Clive goes on walkabout in Well Hall towerblock

Clive met with local residents in Well Hall this morning to join them in a walkabout around the tower block. “It was nice to meet the residents and hear what they had to say about their block. I was the Councillor for Well Hall before I became an MP, so it was good to catch up with some old friends.”

During the walkabout Clive agreed to contact the local SNT about some problems, mainly outside the blocks, of anti-social behaviour and the Council repairs department about some issues in some of the flats.

Clive has told the residents he will be back in a few weeks to see that the work discussed has been completed.

Clive joins Arlene to back dementia campaign

Clive was delighted to join dancer and choreographer Arlene Phillips to back the Alzheimer’s Society campaign to remove the stigma and ignorance that surrounds Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Clive Efford MP with Arlene Philips dementia

“There are currently over 700,000 people living with dementia in the UK today.  And yet the condition remains shrouded in ignorance.  Most people simply don’t know enough about dementia and until they do we will not be able to tackle the stigma that some sufferers have to face.  That is why I am delighted to back this campaign” explained Clive
