Dr Dan in Westminster: Reporting Back

Dr Dan has been representing his constituents in Westminster in a number of ways by being a part of the Conservative Party implementing their manifesto commitments and scrutinising legislation in a number of areas.

Dr Dan also takes an active interest in the field of Mental Health and asked in the chamber a question to the prisons minister about the possibility of initiating a national scheme for critical time interventions for prisoners with mental health problems.
