Ever wondered what your MP does for you and your area - well if your MP is Paul Farrelly it turns out it is quite a lot:
You will see Paul out and about during the coming weeks, ready for a chat and to hear your opinions and issues.
Here is a list of some of the work Paul has done for local constituents and their families in the last 5 years alone - he has:
Dealt with over 300 health and social care cases including -
battling for prescriptions of vital drugs and treatments
problems at the hospital, not least with A&E and waits for appointments
addressing issues with social services visits for the elderly and disabled
Worked on over 200 housing cases including -
helping those hit by the awful Bedroom Tax
getting families a suitable home with associations such as Aspire
tackling anti-social behaviour
Taken up over 150 problems with HM Revenue and Customs including-
difficulties with tax credits, Child Support Agency and child benefits
supporting local businesses during tough economic times
In fact during this last Parliament Paul and his team has helped over 2000 people with personal and local problems including parking, potholes and planning, education, employment, the environment, banks, benefits, bus passes, rail fares, recycling and rats!
"Newcastle's my home town. I care passionately about where I come from. And I'll always fight strongly for the good of our area - and for all who ask me to help out."
So if he knocks on your door be ready to chat, he is an MP that knows the area, knows its people, an MP who cares and acts on your behalf.....
