It is with much sadness that we have to tell you of the death of Deborah Hill, Practice Nurse and valued member of the team for the last 15 years. Deb died shortly after being diagnosed with a form of cancer that currently cannot be screened for. As her role involved public health, her family want to encourage people to take up the current screening available and to contact their GP with any unusual symptoms. Deb will be missed by us all but will always be remembered as a dedicated, professional, compassionate nurse, colleague and friend, an integral part of our Woodlands team
