High quality healthcare for all

Since being elected as your MP, healthcare has been one of my very highest priorities. With Oxfordshire Health bosses looking at how to make Oxfordshire's health services work best in the future, as well as issues with local services, this is an essential topic that I will continue to work hard on.

Our NHS and the services it provides are vital to us all.  From ensuring Chipping Norton residents are consulted, to campaigning for better GP access in our rural area, I will always fight for local services.  I will focus on building key relationships to understand the complex challenges that surround them, and work to improve mental health provision and adult social care.
