  1. Mari Isdale, 37, turns to Salford MP and fundraising in her fight for cancer drug Salford resident and fertility unit doctor Mari Isdale, 37 is having to fight on two fronts, not only from the reoccurrence of the cancer she beat three years ago, but now having to fight for funding to continue receiving the life-prolonging bowel cancer drug cetuximab on the NHS. Mari was first diagnosed with cancer in 2015, and after two years of successful treatment with chemotherapy and cetuximab it went into remission in 2018. Sadly, Mari was diagnosed with a reoccurrence in November 2020, but even though resuming cetuximab treatment was recommended by her oncologist, the funding is not available on the NHS. Under NHS England rules, there is a six-week treatment break policy for those who are treated with cetuximab, however for NHS Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, who all adhere to NICE Guidelines, they do not have a six week treatment break rule. Cetuximab is a type of targeted cancer drug. It is also known by its brand name Erbitux. It can be used in the treatment of advanced bowel cancer as well as some head and neck cancers that start in the mouth and throat. It is a type of monoclonal antibody. Monoclonal antibodies (MABs) are laboratory made copies of a single antibody which seek out cancer cells by targeting particular proteins on the cell surface. Bowel Cancer UK have questioned the reasoning for the treatment break policy in a letter to the Government in 2018, in which they said: Mari is now having to fundraise the expensive treatment herself and has reached out to her local MP, Rebecca Long-Bailey for help. The MP for Salford and Eccles said: A copy of the letter in .pdf format is attached here: Letter to Health Secretary Matt Hancock from Rebecca Long-Bailey re Six week break policy for cetuximab treatment - Isdale.pdf Mari’s family have set up a Go Fund Me for donations to help her pay for her cetuximab treatment: https://gofund.me/6ee44a6c
  2. In a tweet the Eccles & Salford MP asked if the Conservatives green infrastructure bank plans released earlier this afternoon, were a joke? During his speech the Chancellor Rishi Sunak, declared: Mrs Long Bailey quickly took to Twitter to mock the Chancellor for not going far enough in 'Facing the existential threat of climate change' as he set out his plans for the first ever UK infrastructure bank, set to open later this year in Leeds. She slammed the move by describing it as a 'Paltry £12Billion', 'Shiny retail savings products' and a 'Distant report into carbon offsetting in the City of London'. She declared, "A Green Revolution this is not". However, Mr Sunak’s announcement of the formation of the bank during the Budget has been broadly welcomed by industry and confirms the plans revealed last November alongside publication of the National Infrastructure Strategy. While Sunak announced a capitalisation of £12bn in the Budget, the bank will have a further financial capacity of around £10bn in the form of issuing guarantees. The bank will also be able to draw upon Treasury capital, as well as borrow from private markets with growth delivered through recycling and retention of return on investments. Government will allocate further capital to the bank in phases but it will operate as “an arm’s length institutional unit” and “with a high degree of operational independence”. During his speech, Sunak pledged to put green investment at heart of economic recovery as the country attempts to rebound to the largest government spending in modern times.
  3. Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey has told Parliament the harrowing story of one poor woman so desperate that she felt that she had no choice but to give up and rehome her beloved dogs as she could not afford to feed them any more, as a matter of fact she was so desperate for food herself she had to resort to eating dog food as it is all she had left in her cupboards. The story is just one of hundreds of truly horrific stories of people in Salford and across the whole country that have struggled to get access to the most basic necessities during the pandemic. There are huge sections of society who were unable to be furloughed or qualified for business support, many of whom have lost their homes and livelihoods. These are tales not only from those who have previously fallen through societies gaps but from those who pre pandemic had successful careers and liveable incomes. Mrs Long-Bailey called for more help and support from the Chancellor Rishi Sunak to help the estimated 3 million people who do not qualify for the Governments financial aid and support during the pandemic.
  4. United Utilities proposals to place a storm tank on an area of land at the Three Sisters nature reserve have been turned down by a city planning panel yesterday (15th October). Representatives from the Ellesmere Park Residents Association made an impassioned plea to save the beloved site of biological importance and diversity, stating the devastating impact the work would have on local wildlife and fauna. They were backed by local councillors Sharmina August and Mike McCusker alongside Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey who gave strong arguments in objection to the application. Councillor McCusker motioned to refuse the application which was quickly seconded by newly appointed Salford Wildlife Champion, Lewis Nelson. The voted ended almost unanimously with 9 for refusal and just one abstention. It is hoped that the Utilities company will take this show of support as an indication to seek alternative proposals for the area, However, UU can chose to appeal the decision and even ignore it completely due to having a national mandate for large infrastructure projects. We understand that the Council is seeking a tree protection order as a safeguard.
