North Yorkshire MPs Support the Call For the Introduction Of A Pharmacy Minor Ailments Scheme

During December 2014 and January 2015 Julian Sturdy (MP for Outer York), Hugh Bayley (MP for York Central), Robert Goodwill (MP for Scarborough and Whitby), Andrew Jones (MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough), Julian Smith (MP for Skipton and Ripon) and Nigel Adams (MP for Selby and Ainsty) all visited Pharmacies within their respective constituencies. The purpose of each visit was to encourage people to use their local pharmacies to their fullest extent. This is because they are a convenient alternative to GPs and A&E when it comes to minor ailments such as, coughing, respiratory problems, colds and sore throats.

New Year Message from local MP Robert Goodwill

2014 has been a good year in many ways.  The economy continues to recover with the jobless total falling by one third locally.  The future of Whitby Hospital has been secured and, at long last, improvements to the A64 are in the pipe line.  2015 will see the start of the Scarborough Water Park project, progress on a new college and university campus and hopefully the green light for the Potash Mine.  This New Year will also bring the General Election in May!
