Dr Dan speaks to local businesses leaders in Ipswich

Dr Dan speaks to the audience at the Ipswich Chamber of Commerce Business Brunch Dan is a great supporter of our local businesses in Suffolk and was delighted to be the keynote speaker at a business brunch event organised by the Ipswich Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by the Ipswich Building Society on Friday morning at the Jerwood Dance House in Ipswich. A number of representatives from local businesses were present and heard him speak about the importance of good health in the workplace.

Dan stressed how a happy, healthy and committed workplace is a more productive workplace and drew attention to the link between good physical and mental health. He also highlighted the need to tackle our big health challenges such as smoking, alcohol misuse and obesity and to help people to live longer and healthier lives. The Government has now given local councils a new responsibility to improve health and wellbeing in their communities and recently awarded Suffolk County Council £26 million to help get people healthier.

Following his speech, Dan took a large number of questions from the audience before thanking Professor Dave Muller and John Dugmore at the Ipswich Chamber of Commerce for organising such a successful event. Suffolk’s businesses play a vital role in our local economy and Dan will continue to do all he can to support them grow and employ more local people.
