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.

Maternal Mental Health

Thank you very much for taking the time to email me about maternal mental health.

I understand your concern on this matter and agree that the six week check up for mothers is very important. I know that some GP surgeries do not routinely offer a postnatal check, however you can always request an appointment for a check, especially if you have any concerns. Sometimes a postnatal check is also done at the same time as the baby's 6 to 8 week check.

You can find out more about this here.
