In January 2020, Allin-Khan announced her candidacy for Labour Deputy Leader in the 2020 deputy leadership election. It was revealed that she had finished as the runner-up (second place) of five candidates with 26.1% of the vote in the final round of voting when the results were announced on 4 April 2020.
Allin-Khan left the Labour Party Shadow Cabinet of Keir Starmer on 4 September 2023. She criticised Shadow Health Secretary Wes Streeting's support having more private businesses involved in the National Health Service (NHS). She also said that Starmer did "not see a space for a mental health portfolio in a Labour cabinet".
