Statement to voters
Claire Jackson-Prior has lived in Sutton since 2002, having grown up on a council estate in Bognor Regis and then living in Enfield for 5 years. She has two children, who both attend a local high school. She has a degree in Geology from the University of London, having studied at UCL. She has worked in photographic agency and has been a direct seller.
Claire is passionate about the NHS and St Helier Hospital. Her children were both born at St Helier, and she herself was treated there for a heart attack in 2008, so she understands the importance of having an acute hospital nearby.
Claire opposes the plans of the Epsom and St Helier Hospitals NHS Trust to replace the 2 acute facilities we currently have at Epsom and St Helier Hospitals with a single acute unit. She also opposes the cuts to NHS Services and prescriptions and proposals to reduce the number of GP surgeries.
Claire is also concerned with many other local issues including parking problems outside schools, stress on children being prepared for standardised testing, provision in schools for pupils with special educational needs, litter, domestic rubbish collections being missed, dog fouling and the condition of local roads, paths and cycle lanes.
Claire is one of the founders and also the website manager of The Gower Initiative for Modern Money Studies (GIMMS). The primary objective of GIMMS is to promote a better public understanding of economics and the policy space afforded by our monetary system for social and environmental justice.
