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.

Postgraduate Nursing Bursaries

Thank you for writing to me about postgraduate nurse bursaries.

This issue was covered by the Health and Social Care Select Committee report into the nursing workforce and I have raised my concerns with the minister about the issue of postgraduate training and in particular the impact on shortage specialities within nursing: https://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/health-committee/inquiries/parliament-2017/inquiry/
