Julian welcomes Budget for York’s recovery

I warmly welcome the comprehensive extension of emergency covid jobs and business support, but this must not detract from the urgent need to safely return to normal trading conditions, facilitated by successful vaccination. It is a relief predictions of peak unemployment of nearly 12% have been revised to 6.5%, giving hope of a solid recovery.

Julian pledges to support people living with Atrial Fibrillation

September 14, 2015

Julian has pledged to work with the AF Association and the dedicated All-Party Parliamentary Group to improve detection rates and patient care for the one million people suffering from the condition.

At a recent event held in Parliament, Julian received a pulse check and an ECG reading with a new device that allows patients to check their heart rhythm by using their own smart phone or tablet.

Atrial Fibrillation is one of the most common forms of heart rhythm disorder, and it is estimated that up to half of all patients remain undiagnosed. As the condition is more common in older patients, the number of people living with Atrial Fibrillation is expected to double by 2050 as Britain’s population ages.

Following the event, Julian said “I am pleased to be able to support people living with Atrial Fibrillation, and we must work to improve detection rates and access to treatment, whilst providing patients with the best possible care. The extra resources the Government are investing into the NHS over the next five years will help ensure that detecting and preventing this disorder remains a key priority for our health service”.
