Biographical Information

"I was elected as the Labour MP for Leicester West on May 6th 2010. I’m also a member of Labour’s frontbench team, attending the Shadow Cabinet as the Shadow Minister for Care and Older People.... As Director of the Ambulance Service Network – the national organisation that represents all NHS ambulance services – I worked with NHS staff and patients’ groups to make sure everyone gets the best possible urgent and emergency care. As Director of the Maternity Alliance charity, I campaigned to improve maternity and paternity pay and leave, to give parents more rights to flexible working, and to provide better health services and childcare for new parents and their babies.

"I’ve worked for two ‘think-tanks’: the Institute for Public Policy Research, where I was the Associate Director for health, social care and children’s early years; and the King's Fund, where I was a researcher on the public health programme focusing on tackling local health inequalities."[1]

"She was special adviser to Patricia Hewitt MP, when she was secretary of state for health (2005 – 2007) and secretary of state for trade and industry and minister for women (2004 – 2005)... Liz has also been a research fellow for the King’s Fund’s Public Health Programme and a special adviser to Harriet Harman MP, when she was secretary of state for social security and minister for women." [2]

On January 13, 2015, she supported the Government's "Charter for Budget Responsibility" which will see a further £30 billion cut from the Government's budget.
