Last week, Dan visited the Framlingham Technology Centre for his regular slot on community radio station, Radio Castle. Listeners were able to tune in and hear Dr Poulter online, as he discussed various topical national and local issues with Councillor Christopher Hudson and Peter Warren. Among the topics that came up were the Government’s NHS reforms and Dan spoke about how giving doctors and nurses – the people who know their patients best – a much greater say in how our health service is run will deliver an NHS that puts patients first and is true to its founding values.
Radio Castle, which operates out of the Framlingham Technology Centre, was set up in 2011 by directors Christopher Hudson, Colin Walker and Rupert Darrant and is run as a community interest company. Community radio stations like Castle Radio play a vital in reaching out to local people and Dan would like to thank Christopher Hudson and Peter Warren for inviting him onto Radio Castle. He very much looks forward to appearing on the station again soon.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
