Earlier in December Pat McFadden MP held a Westminster Hall debate covering the area of treatments for Sickle Cell Disease. Sickle cell is a life-long condition mainly affecting people from African and Caribbean backgrounds and it causes intense pain across the body. It is a condition that is not understood well enough by medical professionals, and research is grossly under-funded by the Government.

I have long campaigned on Sickle Cell and will always be a champion for my constituents who suffer from it. I am pleased to be Vice Chair of the APPG for Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia, and was pleased also to speak in this debate.
