Dr Dan holds Meet Your MP event in Wickham Market

Dan addresses audience at Wickham Market Meet Your MPDr Dan was delighted to hold his latest Meet Your MP event in Wickham Market, where he answered unscripted questions on a number of issues from a large audience of local residents at the local village hall. A variety of topics were covered by Dan, including the Coalition Government’s Health reforms; the need to provide more community-focussed health and social care to look after our growing ageing population; out-of-hours GP care in Suffolk; public sector pensions; planning reforms, along with the Government’s measures to increase the number of apprenticeships for young people.

He always enjoys the opportunity to talk to residents directly, and to update them on the work he is doing as your MP for Central for Suffolk and North Ipswich. Dan would like to extend his thanks to Councillor Brian Hall for helping to organise the event, along with all of those who attended, and looks forward to his next Meet Your MP event.
