Rounding off a very busy day in Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, Dr Dan was pleased to visit Baylham Care Home to hear of their continued successes and to meet some of the residents.
Following a tour of the Home and watching some residents' games, Dr Dan then had a private meeting with the owners of the care home to discuss their ongoing concerns around funding across the care sector.
