I want to take this opportunity to send my season’s greetings, to each and every one of you and wish you all a happy new year.
Following an eventful year, one thing we must remember is Edmonton’s great community, it’s important we continue to spread the love and treat our neighbours with respect.
Edmonton has seen rising levels of rough sleeping and hidden homelessness in recent years. My constituency office opened more cases pertaining to housing than any other single issue. With increased poverty and street homelessness in Edmonton, I secured a debate on Homelessness in April.
New members and old, together, we are a formidable force in our society and politics. In the last year we forced the Tories to drop their appalling plan to cut Personal Independence Payments for those with disabilities and they were forced to retreat on cuts to Working Tax Credits. We have forced back their plans to make every school an academy and we have campaigned for our National Health Service and social care, which are in crisis due to Tory cuts and mismanagement. We must continue the fight in the new year.
I am proud to represent you and will continue in making stronger Edmonton.

Following the Chief Inspector of Hospitals published report on North Middlesex University Hospital (NMUH) NHS Trust after a comprehensive inspection by the Care Quality Commission in September 2016. The trust has been rated as Requires Improvement overall.
Kate Osamor MP, responding to the report by the CQC said:
“Too many of my constituents are waiting in the emergency department, with over 500 people visiting in any one day – there’s no surprise the Emergency Department is not meeting its targets.
The situation has somewhat improved, following the unannounced inspection of the urgent & emergency services in May 2016, when the services were rated inadequate.
It is deeply concerning that leadership of the maternity and gynaecology department is deemed inadequate. Inspectors reported, patients privacy and dignity were not always protected, while safety checks on agency nurses’ were inconsistent and badly managed.
The trust requires improvement to demonstrate a safe, effective, caring and responsive Hospital.
The trust needs to respond to the report, improving our hospital for the better!”
