I'm Dr Dan Poulter, MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich. The people of Suffolk are always my first priority, but when time permits, I continue to work as an NHS hospital doctor on an unpaid basis. I live locally and am a dedicated and hard working constituency MP. Please feel free to get in touch with me if I can help you in any way. Click here if you would like to receive my newsletter about what I am doing on your behalf on important local issues. Your details will not be passed to any third parties and you are free to cancel the updates at any time.

Best wishes,
