Dr Dan enjoys a masterclass in engineering

Recognising the important role that small and medium businesses play in supporting Suffolk's thriving economy, Dr Dan is always happy to support businesses here in Central Suffolk and North Ipswich. On Friday 27th April, Dr Dan was delighted to visit local specialist engineering firm, Boardley and Roberts in Great Blakenham.

Established in 1921, Boardley and Roberts has built a reputation for consistently high standards and expertise and Dr Dan was delighted to be shown around by Mr Richard Boardley, who was also joined by an apprentice from nearby Claydon High School. Building links with local schools helps to ensure that Suffolk's young people have access to skills training and apprenticeships, creating a skilled workforce for the future and creating local jobs here in Suffolk.

One of the challenges she raised is that of those patients with fluctuating...
