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. 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. 

Best wishes,





Dr Dan Poulter MP
