Most MPs hold a surgery to give the people in their constituency an opportunity to meet them. Rather like a doctor's surgery, constituents can turn up at an MP's office to discuss matters that concern them. MPs usually hold surgeries once a week and advertise them in the local press and sometimes in the local library. An MP will often take up an issue on a constituent's behalf.
