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,
