Daniel Poulter - MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich

Dr Dan Poulter was an NHS hospital doctor. He was elected MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich in May 2010 and again in 2015.

In September 2012, Dan was invited to join the Government as a Health Minister with responsibilities including maternity, children's health, veteran’s health, NHS procurement, and the NHS workforce.

Dan is a strong believer in MPs having life experience outside of politics and still works as an unpaid NHS hospital doctor on a part-time basis.

Dan has helped to secure a new heart unit at Ipswich Hospital, so that people do not have to travel to Cambridge or Essex for routine treatment. In conjunction with Suffolk MPs and County Councillors, he helped secure £12 million in Government funding for super-fast broadband and ensured that the hourly train service was restored on the East Suffolk line between Ipswich and Lowestoft.

When time permits, Dan is a keen rugby player, cricketer and golfer.
