I was born and brought up in the North-West of England. I work as an NHS hospital specialist and I am the originator of #foodbankfriday to draw attention to those who are in food poverty because of Austerity.

I have strong ties in Norwich and mid-Norfolk and if elected as your MP will be moving to live in the Constituency.

For 2020 what I want to see is enhanced engagement between local employers and schools/ colleges, improved local bus services, increased funding for the local NHS and hospitals and more Labour representation at all levels of Government.

My politics is influenced by my experience as doctor and the people who I meet. Taking care of our society and environment is no longer a choice but a necessity.
