Follow this EDM by:


That this House applauds the decision of Helena Robinson, a postdoctoral research officer at Bangor University, who, along with 19 colleagues on 24 July 2018 handed back medals to the Government that had been awarded for work in Sierra Leone during the ebola outbreak; supports the decision to return these medals in protest at the Government's hostile environment policies and denial of health care to patients in the UK who are unable to prove their immigration status; respects the integrity of these professionals who crossed borders to help patients in desperate need, and now act to stand against the Government-imposed borders between health workers and patients in the UK; and calls on the Government to put an end to its hostile environment policies and its unyielding attacks on the most vulnerable in our society.
