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.
