Dear Resident

Scunthorpe Market

Thank you for taking the trouble to sign the petition in support of Scunthorpe Market.  It is an amazing indication of how valued our market is that 19,000 people signed the petition in just 4 weeks. I am hugely proud of the way in which local people have rallied round to show how important our market is.

The organisers of the petition asked me to present the petition in parliament which I did on October 31st, drawing attention to the fact that Scunthorpe Market has been part of the lifeblood of our community for generations. 

I am determined to continue to work with local people to get the North Lincolnshire Council to see sense and respond positively to people’s concerns about moving the market.   The lead petitioners, including traders and customers, submitted the petition to North Lincolnshire Council.  This led to a Special Council meeting to discuss the Market’s future which took place on the 14th December.  Since then the Council has gone rather quiet about what it intends for Scunthorpe Market’s future.

I am keen to know how you would like to see the market developed.  Would you prefer it to stay in its current location and if so how would you like to see it develop?  Or if you would prefer to see it move what sort of alternative location would allow it to prosper and continue to deliver for customers like yourself?  Do let me know your thoughts by commenting on my website nicdakin.com or emailing me.

I will continue to do everything I can to work on your behalf with the Market Traders, North Lincolnshire Council and other stakeholders to secure the best possible future for Scunthorpe Market.

If you would like to be kept updated on my work on Scunthorpe Market and other things locally please email nic.dakin.mp@parliament.uk.  Another way of following what I am doing for local people is through my Facebook site www.facebook.com/nicdakinmp

The NHS is turning 70 on 5 July 2018. It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions, to talk about the wide array of opportunities being created by advances in science, technology and information, and to thank the extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday health and care heroes – who are always there to greet, advise, and care for, us.

 

Over the last 70 years, the NHS has transformed the health and wellbeing of the nation and become the envy of the world. It has delivered huge medical advances and improvements to public health, meaning we can all expect to live longer lives.

 

It is thanks to the NHS that we have all but eradicated diseases such as polio and diphtheria, and pioneered new treatments like the world’s first liver, heart and lung transplant. The NHS continues to drive innovations in patient care, including mechanical thrombectomy to improve stroke survival, bionic eyes to restore sight, and surgical breakthroughs such as hand transplants. Looking to the future, the NHS is becoming more integrated and investing in new medicines, genetic research and digital technologies like apps and artificial intelligence, which will ensure we continue to live longer and healthier lives.

 

But none of this would be possible without the skill, dedication and compassion of NHS staff, as well as the many volunteers, charities and communities that support the service – whether it’s the midwives who deliver us into the world, the GPs and pharmacists who advise and treat us, the nurses, doctors and other clinicians who come to our aid when the unexpected happens, the porters who keep our hospitals moving, or the volunteers who give up their time to support and challenge services to improve.

 

That’s why I’m delighted to be participating in the NHS70 Parliamentary Awards. I know from speaking to staff and patients in Scunthorpe County that there are some excellent and innovative things going on locally, but now I want to hear about the best of the best.

 

There are ten categories, covering key areas such as mental health and primary care, as well as a Lifetime Achievement award for someone who has contributed to the success of the NHS for 40 years or more.

 

Information on how to nominate is available at www.nhs70awards.co.uk – nominations close on March 23rd, so please get them in to me as soon as possible on nic.dakin.mp@parliament.uk

Today I was privileged to have the opportunity to do something completely different; we visited Demeter House in Scawby, a school that offers education for vulnerable children with emotional, behavioural and associated learning difficulties, particularly students with autistic spectrum disorders. In the IT room, Gareth Mitchell from the Department of Work and Pensions provided a lesson on possible career choices. He introduced them to a website called ‘icould’ which matches your personality type with potential careers, and it was fantastic to see the different personality types and the careers linked to their personalities.

After that session ended, we then moved to a question and answer session, between the children and Nic. The questions that were asked were diverse, ranging from Nic’s stance on Brexit to young people’s engagement with politics, all equally fantastic questions. I too believe that there should be more focus with young people and politics, especially as they are our future generation and their involvement with important decisions, can and will shape the country’s future. Due to this, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to their opinions, along with their enthusiasm.
