Erewash Member of Parliament Maggie Throup has been appointed as the Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to Ministers in the Department of Health and Social Care.
Maggie was first elected as an MP in 2015 and comfortably held her seat in the General Election in June last year.
“I am honoured to have received this appointment to work supporting the Ministers running the Department of Health and Social Care.
“There is almost no bigger issue in politics than the NHS and I am committed to working hard and ensuring that the link between this critical department and Parliamentarians is as effective as possible.
“For some time now I have been calling for the integration of Social Care into the Department for Health so I am delighted to be part of this new combined team.
“This is clearly a really important period for our NHS and broader health and social care issues. I look forward to doing what I can to support the Ministerial team in the months ahead, whilst continuing to work hard for the people of Erewash as their Member of Parliament.”
Maggie previously served as a member of the Health Select Committee and has worked in or with the NHS since leaving university.
