Danny Chambers wins a landslide victory with the largest number of votes ever in the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons 177 year history.
Danny Chambers, a veterinary surgeon and campaigner, grew up on a livestock farm. He works as a vet in Hampshire and spends much of his time driving around the constituency helping people who live in hard-to-reach rural areas. Danny is an experienced and passionate campaigner and has initiated and organised national campaigns around mental health and animal health and welfare.
One of his most phenomenal campaigns included the 2021 Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) elections where Danny won with a landslide victory achieving the largest number of votes ever in the college's 177 year history. The veterinary profession believes in what Danny can do for mental health awareness, policy reform, communication and for animal health and welfare.
Danny has a diverse range of passions both within the veterinary community and through his political beliefs. Danny sits on the RCVS Education Committee, the Diversity and Inclusion group and the RCVS Knowledge board of trustees.
Much of his work for the RCVS translates into how he works as a politician. Danny has a passion and drive to improve the communities he belongs to, and that is what he will do standing for Winchester, which has been badly let down by the Conservative government. Much like his support for the veterinary community, in his parliamentary career he will strongly engage with his community, campaigning to help people move out of poverty, increase educational prospects, be an ally to marginalised groups and create real and positive changes going forward.
