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.

Brexit and NHS Staffing

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about the impact of Brexit on NHS staffing.

I understand your concern on this matter and I have long been raising the profile of this issue in Parliament as you can see via the following links:

You may also like to read the report from the Health Select Committee's inquiry in to Brexit and Health from the last parliament, additionally we hope to publish a further report into the impact

of Brexit on medicines and medical devices shortly:

Thank you for getting in touch and I quite agree that EU citizens make a vast and valuable contribution to our NHS.
