Andrew Lansley has been MP for South Cambridgeshire since 1997 and between 2010 and September 2012 was Secretary of State for Health. He has visited hospitals and GPs across the country, listening to clinicians and NHS professionals, which has helped shape the Conservative Party's and now the Coalition Government's Health policies, offering the prospect of real and positive change for our NHS.
Andrew is well respected across healthcare for his extensive knowledge of the NHS and health services. Coming from a public service family, his father worked for the NHS for nearly 30 years from 1948 until he retired, running the pathology lab at East Ham Memorial Hospital. His eldest brother trained as a teacher and his middle brother has been a policeman for 30 years.
Andrew previously served as a member of the Health Select Committee and the Trade and Industry Select Committee and is currently the Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Stroke.
His special interests include health policy, trade and industry, and local government.
