Thank you for electing me to be your representative in Westminster as the MP for the Central Ayrshire constituency.  I can promise you that I will, as a member of a strong SNP contingent, work tirelessly on behalf of all constituents in Central Ayrshire.

Thank you also for the incredible support you have shown, not just to me but, to all the SNP candidates who stood for election to Westminster. My colleagues and I will work tirelessly for a better devolution settlement so we can protect our NHS and other public services, and fight inequality and poverty in Scotland.

Who is your Local Health Hero?
If you know someone working in the NHS or the health and social care partnerships in East, North and South Ayrshire, who has gone the extra mile to help you, you now have the chance to recognise their contribution through the Ayrshire Achieves 2017 awards scheme. It could be someone who works in a hospital ward or behind a desk; it could be a clinician or a volunteer – for more info see here
