It is with great sadness that we report that Joyce passed away on the 14th December 2019 she had been a trustee at Crossroads Care North West since her retirement in 2005 and became Chair three years later.
Prior to her retirement Joyce had had a long career in the NHS in nursing, and was Director of Nursing at St Helens and Knowsley Hospitals NHS Trust for seven years before transferring to the Director of Nursing post at the Cheshire and Merseyside Strategic Health Authority.
Joyce was also a Trustee at the St Helens Carers Centre viewing this as an asset to her role as Chair of Crossroads Care North West. Joyce did a great deal of good work as a Trustee on the National Board of Crossroads during its merger with the Princess Royal Trust for Carers to become the Carers Trust. She also participated in projects for the Carers Trust, the most recent being a review of the Carers Trust quality programme as part of its strategic aims.
Joyce is survived by her two daughters both living in London and three beloved grandsons. Joyce will be sorely missed in Crossroads Care North West.
