Dr Dan Joins Our Emergency Services On The Frontline Over The Festive Period

As we spend Christmas safe in our homes with our friends and family, it is important to remember that there are many people who will not be enjoying a holiday because they will be working to make sure that the rest of us are able to have a safe and enjoyable time.

As usual for this time of year, Dr Dan spent Friday and Saturday night last weekend with the front line staff of our emergency services. On Friday, Dr Dan patrolled the streets of Ipswich with Pc James Perrier, Sgt Joanne Towell and some of our police officers for one of their pre-Christmas night shifts over the busiest weekend of the year.

On Saturday, Dr Dan joined an ambulance crew responding to emergencies on the late night shift. The hardworking front line teams do a remarkable job in often challenging circumstances and regardless of the severity or complexity of their problem, they look after every patient in a professional and compassionate way.

This Christmas and New Year when most people are enjoying themselves, Dr Dan remembers his Christmas shifts as an NHS hospital doctor and took the time to thank these dedicated people who help make our holiday period safe and enjoyable, in particular those who accompanied him this weekend.
