Wetheringsett Primary Welcomes Local MP, Dr Dan Poulter

Dr Dan Poulter particularly enjoyed his visit to Wetheringsett Primary School on Friday 8th February, where he was welcomed by a small group of students and Head Teacher, Mrs Hookway.

The students were desperate to show Dr Dan around their school and quickly set about their task of hosting their visitor. During a tour of the school, a number of students put their questions to their local MP, asking all about Dr Dan's work as an MP, both here in Suffolk and in Westminster, and also about his work as a doctor. Aside from finding out more about the role of the MP, the group were also keen to find out a bit more "behind the scenes", not least of all, what was working in Parliament really like.

Visits such as these are important in strengthening the link between what Dr Dan does as an MP locally and how he can make sure that the voice of our communities here in Suffolk are heard in Parliament and Dr Dan looks forward to perhaps welcoming Wetheringsett Primary School to Parliament in the not too distant future.

NHS 10-Year Plan (19 Feb 2019)
Daniel Poulter: The plan recognises that some proposals in the Health and Social Care Act 2012 were made in error when it comes to the transference of powers to public health bodies and local authorities. However, based on my reading of the plan, the omission from that list relates to addiction services. If we are serious about mental health and about improving care and reducing health inequalities in areas...
