Suffolk One

Dr Dan was invited to Suffolk One Sixth Form College in Ipswich to speak to enthusiastic and committed students who were thinking of pursuing a career in the health sector, in a diverse range of specialities including midwifery, paramedics and GPs. As an NHS doctor and a Health Minister, Dr Dan takes an active role in encouraging young people to join the medical profession and knows what a rewarding career it can be.

There is still more to do to ensure that the world of medicine truly represents modern Britain, but today more than half of medical students are women, which was also evident in the number of women attending the meeting, and the profession has become much more ethnically diverse.
