I'm Dr Dan Poulter and it has been a great pleasure and a privilege to have been your dedicated and hardworking local MP for the past 5 years.

The people of Suffolk are always my first priority, but I am also a great believer in MPs having experience of life outside of politics. So when time permits, I continue to work as an NHS hospital doctor on an unpaid basis.

I live locally near Framlingham, am a committed community campaigner, and I am dedicated to securing a better future for the people of Central Suffolk and North Ipswich.

Please feel free to get in touch with me if I can help you in any way, and on this website there is a record of my work as your MP and my priorities in securing a better future for Suffolk.

Best wishes,





Dr Dan Poulter
