I'm Dr Dan Poulter and for the past 7 years, it has been my privilege to be your dedicated and hard working local MP. I live locally near Framlingham, am a committed community campaigner and the people of Suffolk will always be my first priority.

I'm not a career politician and am a great believer in MPs having experience of working in the real world. So, when time permits, I continue to work on a part time basis as an NHS hospital doctor. It is the real life experience gained from my work as a doctor that helps to make me a better MP.

I care deeply about Suffolk and want to secure a better future for everyone in our community. But I can only do that with your help. That is why I am asking for your vote, to help me to continue to secure a better future for you, for your children and grandchildren.

Please feel free to get in touch if I can help you in any way.

Best wishes,





Dr Dan Poulter

Dr Dan calls for an end to the red tape that forces patients to break the law

In calling for a change to the law, allowing doctors to prescribe medicinal cannabis, Dr Dan says that the most distressing thing for a doctor is being unable to care properly for a patient. Yet that is the situation that has confronted those looking after Billy Caldwell. Earlier this week, the 12 year old had his first epileptic seizure in more than 250 days after running out of his cannabis...

Backbench Business: Geothermal Energy — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)
Daniel Poulter: The hon. Gentleman speaks with great knowledge, and I pay tribute to his work promoting geothermal power in his constituency. What are his thoughts on the potential for geothermal power in more rural areas, where there is great reliance on oil central heating, often at great cost and with a high carbon footprint? Does he believe that more could be done to incentivise and encourage developers...

Backbench Business: Geothermal Energy — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)
Daniel Poulter: A number of new, larger homes—particularly barn conversions, which are very popular in Suffolk—have invested in the technology as a means of heating. My question is more about how we can do more to incentivise developers on small-scale developments, perhaps on the edge of rural villages and towns, to look at similar schemes, and what suggestions the hon. Gentleman may have to...
