Dr. Saleyha Ahsan

Candidate for Mayor of Newham and Councillor for Stratford Olympic Park

I am a practising emergency medical doctor working in intensive care. I am also a broadcast journalist working on several news and documentary programmes such as Despatches: Can our NHS Cope? Most importantly, I am your neighbour, I live in this ward in the Prospect East development. I understand the issues you face because I face them too. I am appalled at this incompetent Tory government and the way they have handled the pandemic. I have been bereaved myself and know the hardships many people have felt. I have represented bereaved families in interviews on Sky and BBC news. I know I can use my experience to represent your views, my neighbours, to get this lazy Labour council to listen to you too.

Labour's taking your vote for granted, we're listening to you!
