Dr Daniel Poulter MP
Dr Dan Poulter is an NHS hospital doctor, working in mental health services, who has been our MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich since May 2010.
Dr Dan is a strong believer in MPs having experience of life outside of politics, and he uses his background and real life experience from his work as an NHS hospital doctor to fight for the needs of the people of Suffolk.
As a Government health minister between 2012 and 2015, Dr Dan used his first-hand knowledge and expertise working as an NHS hospital doctor to introduce new language checks for overseas doctors and nurses, to ensure they are able to speak a good standard of English before treating patients.
Dr Dan is also a great believer in spending public money wisely and helped save our NHS over £500 million through improvements in procurement processes and reducing bureaucracy – money which has since been reinvested in front-line patient care.
