Dr Iain Maclennan is standing as the National Health Action party s by-election candidate.

Dr Maclennan, from Bursledon, will run for the MP seat in the Eastleigh contest on February 28.



He has been a practising GP from 1988 to 1991, was a medical officer in the Royal Navy for 10 years, and most recently worked as a consultant in public health at Hampshire PCT.

He left in January to concentrate on politics.

THE NHA says it was formed by healthcare professionals in response to the coalition Government’s reforms and cutbacks to the National Health Service.
