Hopefully an inspirational visit - truly a brilliant, thoughtful & solution seeking GP - Happy 25th 🎉@fhussain73
I know improving GP access is a priority. Meeting the team @Projectsurgery1 @fhussain73 in Plaistow yesterday, I heard about many of the lessons they've learned from Covid. From closer working with pharmacies to new tech to handle calls, they are helping improve patient access.
So important we protect and restore our sensitive chalk streams and treat water as the precious resource it is.💧

Best of luck on your next challenge!
Couldn’t agree more! - this is so important and our constituents voices must be heard - see our Westminster Hall debate on this too ➡️ https://bit.ly/3PWtpIH
My most recent letter to the Chief Exec of National Grid - The detailed report on the offshore alternatives to the current EA GREEN proposals must be independent, assess a range of offshore options & MUST involve my affected constituents.

Wonderful to see the Suffolk County Flag flying high in Parliament Square. Our flag is one of 52 flags of the historic counties of Great Britain on display for #HistoricCountyFlagsDay🇬🇧 when we celebrate our remarkable county’s history, culture and traditions.
Good to speak with BDUK about major delivery programs: Shared Rural Network & Project Gigabit⚡️Connectivity is essential for residents & businesses - I’m glad government is working with suppliers to roll out full fibre to the hardest to reach areas of my constituency #4thUtility
I met with @GBSSupport to hear about their campaign for better prevention against group B Strep. GBS is the most common cause of life-threatening infection in newborn babies in the UK. I spoke to our hospital trust to see what more we can do to tackle the terrible infection 👶🏻
I shared my objection to National Grid UK's current East Anglia GREEN proposals and pushed for sub-sea transmission to be put to the local community as an option. It’s vital any proposals protect rural communities. We power the nation with its food & energy – we want to be heard
Fabulous news and good to see the consultation delivering for the 51% of the population that this affects! Additional breast screening is really welcome to help early diagnosis and save lives.
In welcoming Secretary of State for @DHSCgovuk, I asked him to commit to sorting out electronic prescribing between hospital consultants and GPs to help save patients and doctors time, and free up vital medical appointments.
📣More dental news: @SNEEICB_IES have launched a tender process to provide 3 dental access centres, including one in #BuryStEdmunds. Having worked with a broad range of stakeholders to improve access to patients, I welcome this important step and urge providers to come forward🦷
As a former Health Minister who drove changes for better NHS dental services in April 2021 - improving access, supporting prevention, upskilling the workforce @NHSEngland reforms are a welcome first step. Dental services will need further decisive action to get the job done🦷
Patients across the country will benefit from improved access to #dental care under changes announced today.
NHS dental staff are working hard to recover services and will now be able to carry out even more treatments.

👶 Looking out for those particularly at risk
💨 Ventilating buildings and vehicles
Stunning weekend to receive the @Birminghamcg22 Commonwealth Baton in the #QBR2022 in #BuryStEdmunds. 18 days to go until #Birmingham2022.
Good visit to the reuse shop and HWRC with @suffolkcc, @FCC_Environment and @CharityTBF. Funds from the shop help with other projects TBF run and help drive a circular economy.♻️
Enough is enough - 13 MPs say @nationalgriduk must reopen the East Anglia GREEN pylon consultation. Protection of rural communities must be given the same weight in East Anglia as in other parts of the UK. #OffSET
Saddened to hear of the death of former Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe. He will be remembered as a great statesman who tragically died whilst campaigning for what he believed in. My thoughts go out to his family and the people of Japan as they mourn this terrible loss.
The United Kingdom mourns the tragic death of former Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe, a great friend of this country.
Our thoughts are with his family and the Japanese people at this dark and sad time.
Meeting earlier with minister @GillianKeegan, colleagues & health leadership @NSFTtweets demanding improvements to mental health provision for constituents across Norfolk & Suffolk. Progress must be made to address patient concerns - further meetings scheduled over coming weeks.

It is with a heavy heart that I have this morning tendered my resignation to the Prime Minister. I will not be doing media interviews on this matter.
Every child deserves the best start in life and that means providing families with the support they need to balance work with childcare costs.
That’s why we want to increase awareness of childcare offers that boost choice and affordability for parents.

It is heartening to see 4 community projects in Bury St Edmunds benefit from £463,508 of funding from @TNLComFund. These groups are fantastic in the great work and support they provide to local people and their community through what have been some extremely challenging times.
Fascinating visit at @INFARM_Global to discover the reality of delivering fresh food to the customers from the urban environment. A new way of farming to complement traditional agriculture: using data-driven ag and science for nutritious and sustainable crops.
Today @INFARM_Global launched one of the largest European urban farms in #Bedford, UK, spreading over 10,000 sqm. The opening ceremony included addresses from @Jochurchill_MP, @YasinForBedford, and Erez Galonska, CEO and co-founder of Infarm https://tinyurl.com/msfnvcxz
