I hold a regular advice surgery my constituency office. These are generally organised for late Friday afternoons as I work Monday to Thursday in Westminster. If you would like an appointment, please email Christopher.Pincher.MP@Parliament.uk or call 01827 312778.
You must give your full address on any email so we can be sure you are a constituent of Tamworth. No appointment will be offered if you do not provide this information to me or my team.
If you are based outside of my constituency, please contact your own MP first who can make appropriate arrangements if a meeting is required. You can check who your MP is by typing your postcode into www.writetothem.com.
Surgery appointments usually last 15-20 minutes.
Please be advised that surgery appointments are in high demand and so my office operates a triage system on first contact. This is to see if I or my team can help with enquiries, particularly urgent enquires before waiting for an appointment. In the majority of cases, I can get a case started, make contact with relevant authorities, businesses or Ministers once I have a little more information, then depending on the usefulness of the response, may book you in for an appointment.
There may be a lengthy wait to secure a surgery appointment depending on local demand, if this is the case, it may be beneficial to meet with a staff member, so again we can get your case started.
With regard to issues that fall under the remit of a local authority be it Tamworth Borough Council, Lichfield District Council or Staffordshire County Council as the Member of Parliament, I have no power to compel local authorities to act or change any of their decisions, I can only seek to influence them. However, I am always happy to formally pass on concerns that are raised with me for the relevant Chief Executives to review.
If you are a business, pressure group member, work in London or for any other reason require a Westminster based appointment, please email through this information or call my Westminster team on 0207 219 7169.
Finally, I try to get out in the constituency holding surgeries in local community centres, pubs and other venues when my diary allows. Keep an eye on the newspapers for these sessions but where possible, I post something to nearby residents if I will be in their immediate area.
