Consultant Rheumatologist Susan Knight described Margaret’s long career with the Trust and thanked her on behalf of all the many staff and students she had helped over the years, recalling her work spent in PGME and the multi-professional health sciences library – now the staff library.
We wish Margaret all the very best for a long, happy and rewarding retirement and hope to see her soon.
