Alice Murphy: A Dagenham Girl

Jon Cruddas was recently contacted by the daughter of Alice Murphy. Alice moved to Dagenham in the 1930’s and attended Dagenham County High School. She trained as a primary school teacher; a career she never had the chance to follow as a Mother of seven children. She married Michael Murphy and by the time she passed away had been married for over 60 years.

MP Calls for Investment in GP Services

Jon Cruddas, Labour MP for Dagenham and Rainham, met with North East London NHS senior management (4 Nov) to discuss their plans for GP and primary health care services across Rainham, South Hornchurch and Elm Park. Jon is concerned that the area has seen a contraction in local GP surgeries in recent times whilst housing development has continued at a large scale in the south of Havering.
