Ten years ago, our much loved Hartismere Community Hospital was reapeatedly threatened with closure. Dr Dan has helped to keep Hartismere open and secured £1.5 million for the reopening and refurbishment of the hospital. His efforts have also seen the welcome return of many vital community health facilities for residents in Eye and surrounding areas.

Dr Dan continues to campaign for high quality community services for patients in rural Suffolk.
