Dame Caroline Dinenage MP for Gosport, Lee on the Solent, Hill Head and Fareham

The following information is taken from

Telephone number: 02392 522121  Email address:  Gosport Office:    167 Stoke Road Gosport PO12 1SE


Caroline holds regular surgeries on a Friday. These surgeries are open to all constituents and give you a chance to meet with Caroline and raise issues directly with her.

If you'd like to make an appointment, please contact Caroline's Senior Parliamentary Assistant Glenn Duggan on the number above.

Your Surgery Appointment

If you do make an appointment to visit Caroline at her surgery, you may find the following information helpful.

Constituency Surgeries are usually extremely busy, so as a courtesy to other people it is requested that you keep to the timing on 15 minutes per appointment. It is therefore important to think carefully about the help you would like Caroline to provide and to keep to the facts. If there is supporting paperwork it would be helpful if copies are made in advance and given to Caroline at the meeting. Caroline will normally be accompanied by her Assistant who will take notes.


167 Stoke Road is located a few doors from Stoke Gallery (picture framing and art shop), opposite Ladbrokes. The building shows the sign of the Gosport Conservative Association. There is usually plenty of side street parking close by. A number of bus routes pass right by the door. Caroline's office is located on the first floor. Any constituent unable to climb the stairs can be seen downstairs. If this is the case, please inform Caroline's Personal Assistant so that the necessary arrangements can be made.


Before requesting a surgery appointment please do:

Check whether the issue can be sorted direct (see useful contacts section above).

Think about whether we could start to help you more quickly if you wrote, phoned or emailed rather than waiting for the surgery.

Please note that Members of Parliament are not permitted to intervene in any matters of a legal nature and cannot offer legal advice.

MPs do not have any jurisdiction over local Council decisions, but Caroline is happy to assist in raising local matters with local councils.
