Millions of respirators will not be used by health workers because they may not fit adequately.
Dr Rosena Allin-KhanThe Govt's 'herculean effort' to get PPE to the frontline was a £250 mil contract with an offshore private finance company who sold them 50 million unusable masks. These decisions have consequences. NHS staff weren't protected and lives were lost.
The PM outlined £5bn worth of infrastructure projects, but what was behind the numbers?
Dr Rosena Allin-KhanSome mental health hospitals are not fit for purpose - it was a @UKLabour manifesto pledge to eradicate old, dormitory-style wards. The money announced today is a sticking plaster that won't go far enough.
Commenting on Labour's plans published today (Monday) for a mental health package for NHS and care staff, UNISON assistant general secretary Christina McAnea said: "Health and care staff have been working under huge pressures over the past few...
Over the last few years, mental health has become a priority for the NHS, government and the general public. Sean Duggan highlights that it must remain so, and be a key part of resetting NHS.
Dr Rosena Allin-KhanAfter COVID-19, we can't return to the status quo in healthcare.
The NHS needs the resources to ensure parity of esteem is put into practice to match the inevitable surge in demand for mental health services.
Proud to support the NHS Reset campaign.

EXCLUSIVE: Figures revealed the shocking toll stress and anxiety are having on health service workers
Dr Rosena Allin-Khan4,700,000.
That’s how many mental health sick days were taken by NHS staff in the 12-months to Feb this year. It’s doubled since 2010.
The Government are failing to protect staff. We need urgent action.
Dr Rosena Allin-Khan4.7m NHS staff mental health sick days were recorded last year, and Covid-19 will only compound the problem.
Clapping is not enough – the Government must support staff mental health now.

Claire Murdoch, the mental health director at NHS England, is concerned the gambling industry will now launch an 'aggressive' campaign with the return of Premier League football.
Dr Rosena Allin-KhanSpot on from @ClaireCNWL on the return of football:

Dr Rosena Allin-KhanLondon is a welcoming place, which celebrates its diversity. Londoners will be as shocked as me, that the Tory candidate for London Mayor retweeted and praised a group of Tommy Robinson supporters.
He’s completely unfit to be Mayor.

Two centrally-run committees, covering strategy and operational delivery, will shape Government's approach to pandemic
Dr Rosena Allin-KhanBitterly disappointed that the Prime Minister has decided, only now, to show some leadership.
At least 50,000 people have died. The response was too slow and too weak. We're only reading this headline because the PM’s poll ratings have nose-dived.
From healthcare staff to families that have lost loved ones and those struggling in isolation – this pandemic will have a lasting effect. We have to build a better future
Dr Rosena Allin-KhanWe proudly clap for our carers every Thursday. We must also show gratitude by protecting their mental health in the weeks, months & years to come.
The Govt's support isn't going far enough – healthcare workers deserve better.
