The recently elected MP for Stockton South says he will continue working as a GP, where time allows.
Labour's Dr Paul Williams clinched the seat in last month's General Election from the former Conservative Minister, James Wharton, in what was seen by many as a shock result.
Dr Williams is a guest on this month's edition of Around The House. He told Helen Ford that while he will throw himself into political life, shifts as a GP will allow him to keep his ear to the ground.
You can watch Around The House at 10:45pm tonight (13th July) on ITV Tyne Tees.
