BAME Blood, Stem Cell and Organ Donation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Colleen Fletcher: The Minister mentioned the private Member’s Bill of my hon. Friend the Member for Coventry North West (Mr Robinson). I hope she is aware that stem cell transplantation is very much done when the person alive, which is what makes it so easy. People do not have to die to donate. I just want to make sure people listening to this debate know that.

BAME Blood, Stem Cell and Organ Donation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Colleen Fletcher: I declare an interest: my husband had a stem cell transplant three years ago. His donor came from this country. Does my hon. Friend agree that, if we are to meet the needs of BAME patients who require a stem cell transplant, we must work with international registers? Increasing BAME donation in the UK alone is not enough. Some 60% of UK patients already receive stem cell transplants from...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (21 May 2018)

Colleen Fletcher: The latest quarterly figures show that in Coventry, 81% of PIP, 76% of ESA, 83% of income support and 100% of jobseeker’s allowance appeals heard by Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service were decided in favour of the appellant. Does the Minister accept that the high proportion of successful appeals highlights the flawed nature of the DWP’s decision-making processes?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Apr 2018)

Recent research shows that having a younger stem cell donor improves a patient’s chance of surviving post-transplant.

I was happy to be a small part of that....

NHS Blood Cancer Care (17 Jan 2018)

Colleen Fletcher: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. Yes, I agree. People are totally different.

People may know that my husband, Ian, had a stem cell transplant more than three years ago, just after being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia. What I have said today reflects his...
