My Facebook Page is my outlet as Member of Parliament for keeping constituents up to date with news on my Parliamentary and constituent activity, and the latest information from in and around Bosworth. I would like to ensure it remains a constructive and informative space for everyone. It is not designed as a platform for others to express their personal political views, as I believe this can negatively affect the experience of constituents on social media.
I do not respond to policy or party concerns on the Facebook page itself, and MPs reserve the right to remove comments which they feel are not appropriate or relevant from their Facebook pages. Abusive comments will also be removed. In my role as a GP, I would not diagnose you over Facebook or Twitter, and my approach with politics and social media is much the same. Concerns about politics can often be complicated issues, and I don’t believe these can be discussed effectively in comment sections on social media sites.
I have a zero tolerance approach to abusive, defamatory or repetitive comments. Any comments like this will be deleted and I will block those who made them.
If you are a constituent and have questions or concerns, you are more than welcome to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that these concerns can be documented, and responded to, effectively.
You can also read more about my work in Parliament and my policy positions here on the website: www.drlukeevans.org.uk. I also have a section on the website for specific campaign responses which can be found here. These include responses to issues which a large number of constituents have contacted me about.
I am also very happy to discuss any concerns you may have during a surgery appointment. Please contact me via email at email@example.com to arrange a suitable time, giving your contact information and details of the issue you would like to raise.
