Joan Ryan MP has welcomed the positive Care Quality Commission (CQC) report into the services provided by the Royal Free London NHS Trust and requested a meeting with the Chief Executive, David Sloman, to discuss the CQC’s identified areas for improvement.

The Trust’s three hospital sites at Chase Farm in Enfield, Barnet, and the Royal Free in Hampstead, have all been rated as ‘good’ by CQC inspectors and “overall the service patients receive is effective, responsive and compassionate.”

However whilst the CQC “found examples of safe care” in many of the services they inspected, the report states that “there is room for improvement in urgent and emergency services and medical care at the Royal Free Hospital […] and medicine at Chase Farm Hospital.”

The CQC report also identified a number of areas for improvement including the need to meet the national standards for the 62 day cancer wait times and to reduce the number of outpatients’ appointments which are cancelled with less than 6 weeks’ notice.  

Joan Ryan MP, Labour Member of Parliament for Enfield North, said:

“As the CQC has said, it is a real achievement that all three of the Trust’s hospitals are offering a good service to patients in my constituency and elsewhere.

I pay tribute to the hard work and dedication of the frontline medical staff as well the leadership shown by the senior management team at the Trust.

 However the safety of patients is paramount, so I will be seeking assurances from David Sloman about how and when the CQC’s identified areas for improvement will be delivered.”

Joan Ryan MP has called on the UK Government to support political and humanitarian efforts to protect Kurds and other civilians affected by the fight against ISIL/Daesh.

I have written to the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Rt. Hon Boris Johnson MP, regarding the military campaign against ISIL/Daesh in Syria and Iraq, and the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the region. You can read my letter by clicking here.

I welcome the news that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have liberated the city of Manbij from ISIL/Daesh. I pay tribute to the SDF - predominantly made up of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) forces - who have shown bravery, courage and resilience in the face of this appalling terrorist group.

They have achieved an important military victory, cutting off ISIL/Daesh’s supply lines to its stronghold in the city of Raqqa and hindering their ability to recruit foreign fighters.

Whilst this battle has been won, the war against ISIL/Daesh is far from over. Civilians are still paying a heavy price in the ongoing conflict. More than 400 civilians died, and tens of thousands of people have been driven from their homes, over the past couple of months in the city of Manbij alone.

A fresh offensive has also been launched to retake Mosul. As Iraq's second largest city and ISIL/Daesh’s last remaining urban stronghold in the country, Mosul’s recapture would be a major blow against the terrorist group in Iraq.

The United Nations has warned that the attempt to liberate Mosul could spark “the largest and most sensitive humanitarian crisis in the world in 2016”, as the final battle could displace up to one million people from their homes.

I remain concerned about the safety of Kurdish citizens in the region, many of whom have for so long been on the frontline in the fight against ISIL/Daesh.

I believe the UK Government must continue to do all it can to support stabilisation and protect civilians who are still trapped in the conflict zones. The government must continue to press for aid deliveries to be made by truck convoy and helicopter, if humanitarian access does not significantly and speedily improve in these cities.

 Joan Ryan MP has written to the Secretaries of State for Education and International Development to express strong support for the Send My Friend to School campaign

I was delighted to meet with pupils from Merryhills Primary School last month, who presented me with their beautifully designed rucksack petitions in aid of the Send My Friend to School campaign. I have now written to the Secretaries of State for Education and International Development on their behalf.

I was really impressed by the pupils' concern for the plight of school children around the world who do not enjoy the same access to education as they do and whose lives are far removed from their own.

We also discussed the problems that young carers in our country have to face by balancing their studies with caring for ill family members or friends. This can put a huge strain on their lives, which can often be a hidden cause of poor attendance, underachievement and bullying.

No child in a developing country should be denied the right to an education, even in times of crisis or conflict, and no child's education here in Britain should have to suffer as a result of the care they give to others.
