Barbara has been appointed as the new Shadow Cabinet Member for Mental Health and Social Care. In her new role, she will work as the voice of Labour Opposition on mental health and social care and on issues for carers.

Barbara said:

“I am delighted to have been appointed as the Shadow Cabinet Member for Mental Health and Social Care. I know there are many challenges in this role and I will campaign to make both mental health and social care a higher priority than they have been.

“I have worked on carer’s issues and on social care since I became an MP in 2005 and I am determined to be a champion for improvements in care and to services for carers.

“There have been years of savage cuts to social care and over 50% of clinical commissioning groups plan to reduce the amount they spend on mental health this year. People deserve better than the decreased NHS services and reduced access to care that they are getting.

“It is time to end the cuts and to start to improve both mental health and social care services.”
