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.

NHS Funding

Thank you for writing to me and I have long campaigned for funding for the NHS and social care.

As chair of the Health and Social Care Committee in Parliament I will shortly be chairing an inquiry into the funding commitments and will also be looking at the new ten year plan when this is finalised as well as the proposals in the social care green paper.

These hearings will be available to watch online or to read our reports via this link
