Dr Dan often spends time out and about with the front line staff of our emergency services. On Monday Dr Dan joined PC Burt and the Suffolk police in Framlingham to see at firsthand the hard work the Suffolk police do in keeping the town safe so that people can enjoy themselves as the busy Christmas season sets in.
