My week starts in Sheffield where I’ll be chairing the second meeting of the Castlegate Area Board which has been set up by the Council with local partners, to champion the regeneration of Castlegate including overseeing the delivery of the levelling-up project for the area.

I’ll then be heading down to Westminster where I’m backing an amendment to the Victims and Prisoners Bill brought by my colleague Diana Johnson for compensation to people given contaminated blood products in the 1970s and 80s.

Tomorrow I’ll be joining for the Health and Social Care Select Committee’s first evidence session on men’s health. After that I’ll be leading a Westminster Hall debate promoting Sheffield’s case for updating our bus fleet with zero emission vehicles as part of the work being done in the city on air quality.

I’ll then be in the Commons where I’ve been selected for Health and Social Care Questions, for which I’ve yet to decide which of the many NHS crises I’ll be pressing Ministers. Later I’ll be joining the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Gambling Harm inquiry to hear from experts on affordability measures to reduce gambling harm, and in the evening attending an APPG for Dentistry & Oral Health event to highlight the importance of NHS dentistry.

On Wednesday I’ll be taking a look at some artwork produced as part of ‘Creative for Climate’ a youth-led event in parliament, coinciding with COP28, where young people have been creating climate-themed art – as well as participating in a research project on climate change and meeting with Universities UK.

I’ll be back in Sheffield at the end of the week where I’ll be meeting with the Magic Pen Group, who are part of Sheffield Voices and Learning Disabilities, to discuss some of the issues facing people with disabilities before holding an advice surgery at ISRAAC.
