Last Friday I visited Birkdale School in Sheffield.

The students and staff were so welcoming and asked some very well-informed questions - from Brexit negotiations to getting a bill through Parliament.

I also spoke to students about the ladder of opportunity and social justice - “Social justice is about getting everyone to the ladder and making sure everyone has a chance to climb; we must have social justice at the centre of the agenda."

On Friday last week, I visited Sheffield Children's Hospital and Charity. I got a sneak peek of the new wards and the Play Tower (funded entirely by the hospital's charity) - such amazing and innovative facilities.

It was interesting to speak to the hospital leadership about the mental health of children and the prevention program they run in schools to help tackle this. Social media and societal pressures appear to be big factors.

It was lovely to be back in Sheffield after receiving a lot of medical care in the city as a child. Pleased they offer free hospital car parking for blue badge holders who are visiting too!
