Riding Arriva Buses in High Wycombe


In my recent Letter from Westminster for the Bucks Free Press, I wrote about my forthcoming meeting with representatives from Arriva to discuss their bus services in our area. On Friday 28th July, I had a very useful meeting with Maq Alibhai, Area Managing Director South at Arriva, along with High Wycombe Operations Manager Renata Hale and Aylesbury and Wycombe Engineering Manager Russell Cato. I also took the opportunity to climb aboard one of the company’s new hi-tech buses which is now operating […]

Wycombe Hospital’s Maternity Unit


I have often received praise from constituents for the work of midwives in Wycombe Hospital’s Maternity Unit which has existed on the Hospital Site for many years. However during the campaign, I spoke to some residents who were unaware of what is available at the Wycombe Hospital site so I thought I would highlight what is available. There is an antenatal clinic at the Wycombe Hospital site providing obstetric and midwife led clinics as well as ultrasound scans, anesthetic clinics and early […]

Minimising Fire Risks in Wycombe


Following the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower, I have been concerned to ensure that we learn from the events in West London so that a similar blaze does not happen again. I have written to Wycombe District Council and our local social housing associations to encourage them to meet with their local fire and rescue officers. From the responses that I am starting to receive from the social housing associations, I am pleased that they are working closely with the Fire Authorities about this important matter.

Investigating the benefits system


I deal with a large amount of benefit-related casework in the Wycombe constituency office and I always hope that benefits are swiftly and accurately paid to avoid people taking on debt. With the introduction of Universal Credit, I have taken the opportunity to write to the Minister to raise particular points about the system on behalf of my constituents, namely: Accurate calculations of Universal Credit Whether Universal Credit can be paid immediately after the assessment Personal Budgeting Support The use of […]

Stroke service maintains ‘A’ Grade after expansion


I was very pleased today to read that the Stroke Unit at Wycombe Hospital has been awarded an A rating by the Royal College of Physicians following its most recent inspection. The Stroke Unit at Wycombe Hospital offers treatment and support for more than 1,300 actual and suspected stroke patients every year. Every quarter the Stroke National Audit Programme (SSNAP) team assesses and scores the performance of all aspects of stroke services in every acute hospital in England, Wales and Northern […]

Accountable Care Systems


Today I would like to join leaders across the health and social care system in Buckinghamshire in welcoming yesterday’s announcement from NHS England that Buckinghamshire will be part of the first wave of Accountable Care Systems being created around the country to deliver improvements to local health care. The system is designed to end the ‘fractured’ health and social care system that leaves too many patients passed from ‘pillar to post’. Local leaders, health experts and communities will have more […]

Seeking better broadband for Wycombe


During the election campaign, I received correspondence from a number of constituents in reference to the quality of broadband around the local area, including from residents in Piddington. A good broadband service is essential for running businesses so I understand the lack of connectivity is frustrating. High Wycombe has a proud manufacturing heritage and needs to attract a range of businesses to remain a competitive industrial centre near to London. Buckinghamshire and Thames Valley Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) have previously informed […]

Please vote Conservative in Wycombe tomorrow to keep our nation secure and prosperous


There is no such thing tomorrow as a safe Labour or Lib Dem vote: if only 6 seats fall, there will be the chaos of a hung Parliament at just the moment we need good government. A Labour or Lib Dem vote risks dire consequences: The chaos of a Corbyn / SNP / Lib Dem Coalition. Jeremy Corbyn as PM who can’t lead on Brexit and opposes shooting-to-kill terrorists. Policies based on a magic money tree, higher taxes and debt. […]
