Campaigns. It is important that I continue to know the strength of feeling on an issue and I prefer to respond to every inquiry, but the sheer size of campaign correspondence means that it is hard to justify to the tax payer the cost and time taken for individual written replies, so regrettably I will no longer reply to every item of campaign correspondence.  I will  post a response to the campaign on the "Responses to campaigns" page of my website.

I am sorry to do this, as it is rather impersonal, but can see no other way of maintaining a good service for all my constituents unless I approach campaigns this way.

Audiology Services

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about NHS audiology services.

I am afraid I was unable to attend the Action for Hearing Loss event on this matter on the 26th of June due to prior commitments. Nonetheless, I understand you have concerns about how local audiology services are commissioned and you may be interested in the following document published by NHS England:

Commissioning Services for People with Hearing Loss: A framework for clinical commissioning groups:
