Dan Poulter MP Pays Us A Visit

Dan Poulter MP Visit Oct 12Dan Poulter visited us last Thursday to see for himself the great work going on at the Children's Hospital and Saint Mary's. 

Dr Dan Poulter is MP for Central Suffolk and North.  He has previously worked as an NHS hospital doctor specialising primarily in obstetrics, gynaecology and women's health.

In September 2012 Dr Poulter joined the Government as a Minister (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State) for Health. His responsibilities include women and children's health, nursing and Veteran's health.

Following the visit Dr Poulter commented: "The Royal Manchester Children's Hospital has the largest paediatric intensive care unit in the UK and I have seen first hand the dedication of the staff and the high quality care they give their young patients.

"Saint Mary's Hospital is a fantastic example of how mums-to-be and new mums in Manchester can receive antenatal, neonatal and midwifery-led care all under one roof."
