Lynn! You are the last of the classic Mersey Care managers who I remember when I started in 2008. Thanks for all your support over the years you have definitely helped me on my physio journey and made me understand the importance of including service users fully. I will miss you but definitely you deserve a rest and I hope you enjoy your retirement!  

Dear Lynn

I have really enjoyed working with you over the past 4 years and have valued your support to help drive forward workforce development, education and training. You will be sadly missed and a hard act to follow!

I wish you all the very best of luck and a happy retirement!

Hi Lynn, It’s been great working with you. You’ll be missed. Thank you for your support and advice. Best wishes for your well-deserved and happy retirement!

Thank you so much for all the support you have given me in the past. You always made time for me. Your listening ear and proactive advice was invaluable. Good luck and happiness in all you do in the future.

Thank you for your support and sending my warmest wishes for your future endeavours. 

Thank you for your help and I wish you well in your retirement.

Very sad to see you go and will very much miss having you around for your wise counsel and support. Very proud of all your achievements in using your Occupational Therapy skills and knowledge for your early ground breaking work in relation to the early models of delivering innovative models to access therapeutic courses post discharge from hospital and from the community; which I believe, was instrumental in adoption and investment in the ‘life rooms’ model.

I appreciate all your work in relation to using the expertise of working with people with lived experience. You have been a role model in relation to working collaboratively working.

Thank you for your work in delivering an AHP structure within Mersey Care NHS Trust we really appreciate having a lead AHP post in the structure.

I will really miss knowing you are around, you have been my phone a friend and a lifeline when times have been challenging. Enjoy your deserved and well-earned retirement

Thanks, Lynn, for all your support to myself and my Teams, I’ve really appreciated your support and kindness. Wishing you all the very best.

Dear Lynn, Thank you for all your personal and professional support over the past 30 years, from when I was a student at Mossley Hill Hospital within your team.    You have always flown the flag for AHPs within the Trust and been steadfast in your passion and commitment to us all. I wish you well for your future, enjoy, it is very much deserved.
