Wednesday 4th November

This morning I chaired a meeting of the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee.

I also attended a reception for Crohn's and Colitis UK, the UK's leading charity on the issue, for the launch of "My Crohn's and Colitis Care" which is a practical advice and information guide about what people living with IBD can expect from their local NHS. In attendance were celebrity ambassadors, along with those affected by IBD, and specialist nurses and gastroenterologists.

In the afternoon I chaired a panel discussion as RESULTS UK, Concern Worldwide, and the University of Westminster launched their joint report, ‘What works for Nutrition? Stories of Success from Vietnam, Uganda, and Kenya”. You can access the report here: http://www.results.org.uk/sites/www.laurencerobertson.org.uk/files/Results%20Nutrition%202015v2.pdf.

It was an excellent event and I look forward to following their work in the future.
