Mr Fletcher, who ousted Labour’s Caroline Flint to be elected as Don Valley's first ever Tory MP at the December 12 General Election, revealed he had had a meeting with Mr Hancock and had invited him to visit the hospital.

Announcing the news on Facebook, Mr Fletcher wrote: ”Met Matt Hancock and he has agreed a visit to DRI in the new year.”

It has been a whirlwind few weeks for Mr Fletcher who was only in Parliament for a week before the Christmas recess and who has spent time since his election setting up his Parliamentary office.
