On Friday I visited the new A&E department at Leicester’s Royal Infirmary.

A&E consultant Dr Lee Walker and Geriatrician Dr Richard Wong showed me how they are working to improve care for frail elderly people.

Both have stressed to me the huge importance social care and community services can play in helping people live longer in their own homes and reduce the pressure on our A&Es.

At the end of Dying Matters Week I visited the brilliant Macmillan cancer information centre at Leicester’s Royal Infirmary. Cancer can have such a devastating impact on families here in Leicester. Having somewhere people can turn to for support, advice or just someone to listen, at such a difficult time in their lives is essential. The partnership between Macmillan and LRI is so important and I am pleased to have visited the Macmillan information and support centre. The centre is a lifeline for local people and I was overwhelmed by the dedication of the nurses and healthcare professionals who support people living with cancer and their families.

I also met with Jane and Georgina who took me around the oncology and haematology wards. They have both worked for the NHS for over 30 years!
