Hey Matt:
1. Your govt cut £700m from public health budgets, so>
2. NHS weight loss & stop smoking clinics scrapped/replaced with “apps”.
3. Biggest causes of ill health=inequality, poverty, over-work, late/inappropriate treatment. All of which your govt is worsening.

Plus your govt has singularly failed to properly regulate any of the industries that get rich off making us unhealthy, from food to road transport. It might be convenient to blame patients, especially those poor ones, for their ‘choices’, but it’s also deeply flawed, @MattHancock
Remember this, from a month or so ago? Nearly half of families can't AFFORD to follow the government's healthy eating recommendations. bbc.co.uk/news/education…

Something to consider about this bill.
“The law criminalizes misrepresentation of a caregiver's experiences and qualifications to help ensure children
are in safe hands."
This fact, all too often, will only be found out after the fact, the damage will be done.

As it is, I would think parents do reference checks before hiring a nanny, if the person has lied before, they will again.
This is yet another reason why we need
a violent felon registry, this puts the power in the hands of the people, for their safety and for the safety of their children.
Too often in #domesticviolence cases, children are involved.
According to the Childhood Domestic Violence Assoc. 5 million children witness

Time to talk about women's reproductive health and dispel a few myths. I'm not one for long threads, so bear with me here. I have a lot of thoughts on this.

The main thing I think gets lost in partisan rhetoric is that we ALL want there to be fewer abortions. But how?

2) Let's start with a universal truth.

🔥Making abortions illegal does not make them less common.🔥

Ever.

Just in case you thought this was an American phenomena.

It's not.

Other countries have learned the hard way that punitive measures don't work.

1. The sleeping giant is slowly awakening to the corruption that is enslaving us all.

Once this giant has fully awoken we shall be unstoppable.

Public awakening is their greatest fear.

3. This long & detailed thread will shine light on corruption in the vaccine and cancer industry.

These are complicated & touchy parts of the #DeepState rabbithole for obvious reasons but facing the #Truth is very important.

The truth shall set everyone #free.

#Gunviolence is a multifacted problem--broad umbrella that includes different "diseases": mass murder, domestic violence, drug/alcohol induced, accidental shootings, suicide, crime related. All have different preventions. Make no mistake, for every problem, there is a solution
Crime is often the last resort for people with inadequate housing, jobs, childcare, and education. Helping indiviudals, esp youth, with truancy, poverty, neglect, mental illness, and substance abuse will reduce #gunviolence. The #prevention is complex and requires science.
So in short, I agree that teaching "compassion to reach out to the disenfranchised child, the friendless, the ones who have little structure at home" is an essential part of the broader equation which involves an investment in society and in our children.

Buffalo pediatricians unite against #GUNviolence as a matter of #publichealth .
wivb.com/2018/03/20/ped…
Dr. Beth Smith on #gunviolence #prevention “There’s a lot of risk factors that go into violence. One of them I think is really important is personal history of violence, children with histories of abuse, children with histories of neglect, and children who witnessed violence."
"The pediatricians are calling for more access to mental health services for children and families, funding for gun violence prevention research, and stronger laws to keep children safe. Specifically, they are calling for a ban on assault weapons and safe firearm storage laws."
