Meeting with the Alzheimer’s Society

On Friday I met with John Kemp from the Alzheimer’s Society in the East Midlands. We discussed how they were supporting patients and their families here in Leicester West. And John also told me about the charity campaigns they are running in Dementia Action week later in the year. 

The meeting followed on from an event in Parliament I held earlier in the week. Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer and I will support the work they do here in Leicester West and also right across the country in finding ways to tackle dementia and support sufferers.
