A leading Fabian Society member and NHS campaigner has joined the Labour shortlist to replace outgoing Holborn and St Pancras MP Frank Dobson.

Ivana Bartoletti, chair of the Fabian Women’s Network, announced her intention to stand as Labour’s parliamentary candidate for the constituency last week.

The former Labour MEP candidate, who works for NHS Protect, joins a long list of names bidding to stand for Labour in Mr Dobson’s place at the next general election.

Camden Council leader Cllr Sarah Hayward, former director of public prosecutions Sir Keir Starmer, NHS consultant Dr Patrick French, former Camden Council leader Raj Chada, West Hampstead councillor Angela Pober and Kilburn councillor Thomas Gardiner are all bidding to stand for Labour in the constituency.

All prospective candidates must now wait until a timetable for selection is drawn up between Holborn and St Pancras Labour Party and the national party before submitting their candidacy.
