As an NHS doctor Dan is very supportive of hospices and the vital work and services they provide.
He was privileged to be able to visit the Treehouse Hospice in Ipswich, which is run by the East Anglia Children's Hospices charity and provides support for children with life-threatening conditions and their families from Suffolk. Dan met many of the dedicated staff and volunteers, some from around the region. He also met three inspirational mums and their children while looking in on a music therapy session.
Dan has always given his support to hospices in Suffolk and will continue to campaign to ensure their voice is heard and recognition is given to them for the work they do in looking after families.
