Dr Dan visits Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses

Dairy products were to the fore last week, when Dr Dan visited one of Suffolk's excellent small businesses.

'Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses' is a family-run business, situated just north of Needham Market, and established in 2004 by Jason and Katharine Salisbury.

The couple have built up their own herd of over 50 pedigree Guernseys, from which they produce fine, hand-made cheese, using traditional methods.

The business has grown a lot since its inception and now employs an apprentice at the farm, where they also make other dairy products and rear their own beef and pork.

On his visit, Dr Dan learned a great deal about their business and the working methods employed, commenting:

"It is so heartening to see a small, rural business like this thriving in Suffolk, and producing food of such quality.  Jason and Katharine have put in such tremendous work over the last 10 to 15 years, and deserve the success they are getting.  Just as impressive was the quality of the cheese, whch was extremely tasty."

Mental Health: Assessment — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (22 Jan 2019)
Daniel Poulter: I am sympathetic to a number of the points the hon. Lady makes, although, for an experienced medical professional, one component of assessing somebody who is unwell is looking at how they appear, because that may be a symptom of distress, self-neglect or other issues, notwithstanding the points she has made. One of the challenges she raised is that of those patients with fluctuating...
