We are pleased that Dr Ben Spencer, MP for Runnymede & Weybridge, is the speaker at our first political supper of 2020.
Ben worked for the past 10 years as an NHS doctor, specialising in mental health. He knows the challenges that many hard-working people face. He is passionate about mental health, especially parity of esteem between mental health and physical health, and public health measures to prevent mental illness. Ben believes that the Mental Health Act needs reform, and he was on one of the working groups in the recent Independent Review.
For the past 3 years Ben has volunteered for a homelessness charity in London, going out at night helping people to come off the streets, and recently was a Public Governor for an NHS Mental Health Foundation Trust.
Ben went to a state grammar school in the West Midlands and attended medical school in London. He is married and has two children.
He believes that everyone, no matter their background, needs great opportunities in life: a quality education, a stable job, the chance to own your home, to raise a family, and the safety net of strong public services.
On 12th December 2019, Ben was elected the MP for Runnymede and Weybridge - increasing the Conservative majority in the constituency!
