Campaigning for Better Healthcare

As a Consultant Paediatrician in the NHS, I am passionate that our health services and social care deliver for our local community. I will continue to use my experience in the health service to work with local leaders and Ministers on improving our NHS and supporting training and recruitment of doctors, nurses and dentists. I am currently campaigning for a new dental school in Lincolnshire to help improve access to local dental provision as I understand access to NHS dental services is a priority for my constituents. I look forward to continuing my conversations with the Government, local universities and health organisations so we can work together to improve NHS dentistry in our county.
