Election Address


Many thanks to all the people who have been contacting me about the Conservative North West Durham Election Address. It is clear that many people are concerned about the future of Shotley Bridge hospital. This photograph is of me visiting staff and patients in Shotley Bridge hospital. As my election address stated, having worked as a front line NHS doctor for a decade I would ensure that your health and Shotley Bridge Hospital are safe in my hands. David Cameron has pledged that the NHS is his number one priority. So, look out for more David Cameron support in the final week before the election as the Conservatives poll the Party most trusted with the NHS.

Conservative MP helps Campaign in Consett


A big thank you to Brooks Newmark MP for Braintree, who kindly helped out by joining our campaign team in Consett. We were delighted to get such a positive response. There was a clear message that the people of Consett are fed up of being taken for granted by the Labour Party. So, if you want change for the better - Vote Conservative on May 6th.

Move Over David cameron, Nick Clegg and Gordon Brown.

We are lucky enough to have a star living in our very own North West Durham constituency - five year old Cherry from Willington. I think she would steal the show at any leaders' debate - and I hope David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Gordon Brown all watch this for tips. The first quesion Cherry answers is: 'Should there be more people filling in forms or more doctors and nurses?'

The Hustings at Castleside

video

This is a short clip from the Castleside Hustings on Wednesday night - from left to right the representatives are for Liberal Democrats, Labour, Conservative, Independent, UKIP and BNP, all hoping to represent the people of the North West Durham constituency. We were asked questions from directly from the audience. The question: 'Like many people over the past few years politicians from all Parties seem to have lost touch with ordinary people in the street. People are worried about crime, the NHS and many other things. How do I know you will listen and speak up for us in Westminster?'

Today's Telegraph

Today North West Durham constituency got a mention in the Telegraph, after Grazia magazine printed a feature about how female candidates want to be known for substance over style.

Diggerland, County Durham


Today the sun was shining and the North West Durham team have been hard at work getting on with all the work we have to do between now and the General Election. However, there was a lunch time stop in Langley Park and I couldn't resist popping into 'Diggerland'. They have some of the amazing machines, some of which you can even drive... Plus, I was lucky enough to meet lots of families and children who liked my Union Jack campaign bag.
Tomorrow we shall be campaigning in Willington - you are welcome to come and join in the fun.
