Goodbye's and Good Luck

Over the last couple of months we have sadly had to say goodbye to a number of long term, much loved staff.

Lyn Williams (Healthwatch Halton Manager), Lynn Smith (Quality Improvement and Training Co-ordinator) and Tina Standish (Receptionist) have all taken early retirement.

We have also said goodbye to Emma Rodriguez Dos Santos (Healthwatch St Helens Manager) who will very shortly be off on a new adventure and emigrating to New Zealand!

Everyone at VCA would like to thank Lyn, Lynn, Tina and Emma for all their hard work over the past years and wish them well in their new adventures.
