Claire Perry praises NHS staff who cared for her injured son

Written by Gerald Isaaman.

Praise for hospital staff has come from Claire Perry, Marlborough’s Tory MP, after she left the Commons to care for her son, Hector, who was taken to hospital after a fall at school.

She put a message on Twitter thanking staff at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, in Reading, where Hector was taken for treatment, writing that her PPS day job at the Defence Ministry had to take a back seat.

“Politics put in perspective – with Hector who has been admitted after a fall,” she declared. “Tremendous service at the Royal Berkshire.”
