Ben Loryman's policies
Statement to voters
Ben is an Accident and Emergency Department doctor who has been working in Lincolnshire for the last 9 years.
He grew up in Leicestershire, went to Medical School in Birmingham and was an A&E Registrar in Leicester before moving to Lincolnshire. The highlights of his career have been getting a £10000 grant from Next to help improve the care of patients with severe sepsis and introducing intranasal diamorphine as a treatment for children in severe pain to Lincolnshire. He is deeply concerned by the lack of beds that results in sick patients being stuck on ambulance trolleys, and the difficulties recruiting A&E doctors to Lincolnshire. He believes that elected politicians could help to address both of these problems, which is why he got into politics. He also helped the University of Lincoln introduce their MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice to train more Advance Nurse Practitioners for Lincolnshire.
Ben lives with his partner and two younger children in Lincoln. Since moving to Lincoln he has been on the YMCA Sleep Easy fundraising event, presented to the Lincoln Eastern Bypass inquiry to try and improve the safety of pedestrians and cyclists, and went to Paris to join the thousands encouraging world leaders to sign the Paris Climate Agreement. He also volunteers in a local community garden with his daughter. He drives a Leaf.
He is deeply honoured to be the first Green Party Candidate for Lincoln Borough, and hopes to be able to make the environment a central issue in the debate.
