Dr Dan meets Rising Political Star

Following a busy day in Central Suffolk, Dr Dan was delighted to meet with the Member of Youth Parliament for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, Finlay McPherson.

Finlay is a student at Hartismere High School and he was keen to meet with Dr Dan to find out more about the role of an MP and how he can help to best represent his peer group in Central Suffolk and North Ipswich.

Amongst other things, Dr Dan was happy to learn more about Finlay's priorities for improving e-safety, the reduction of voting age and improving mental health facilities in schools here in Suffolk.

Dr Dan is looking forward to welcoming Finlay to Parliament later this year.

One of the challenges she raised is that of those patients with fluctuating...
