Emma Harper set for ground-breaking virtual surgery

EMMA HARPER is using technology to work around the problems of lockdown. The South-Scotland SNP MSP is getting in touch with constituents via a virtual surgery. Constituents across Dumfries and Galloway are encouraged to book an appointment with Miss Harper for Monday 1 June, by emailing or contacting her team by phone, to help with any queries or support they may currently need. The online sessions will run in both the morning (10am-11am) and the afternoon (5pm-6pm) and once an appointment has been made, arrangements for the online procedure will be discussed. Miss Harper says she is continuing to attend all parliamentary work via online parliamentary committee meetings and in the Scottish Parliament chamber, as well as attending to her South Scotland constituency work, said; “Since lockdown restrictions began, like many other msps, I've been unable to physically attend in the Scottish Parliament chamber and committee meeting rooms but it's business as usual otherwise and I attend virtual meetings throughout the week and with my team we deal with daily issues arising from help needed from constituents who are struggling with a variety of challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Since the beginning of lockdown we have been reaching out to hundreds of people we think may need support, as well as many of the region's businesses to identify immediate needs and assist them." To make an appointment, contact: emma.harper.msp@parliament.scot or call 07484 837 030
