CARING Sue Ashley has spent 15 happy years as a movement disorder nurse-specialist with the Parkinson’s UK association - but now the time has come to move on!

In that lengthy period she has tended to the welfare of hundreds of people with the trying neurological condition, and the grateful group will pay tribute to her efforts at a special presentation next week.

It will be held at the United Reformed Church, Ormskirk Street, on Wednesday, June 27, at 1pm.

Parkinsons UK chairman Austin Griffiths will perform the farewell ceremony before a grateful audience of patients and supporters.

Secretary Bob Mudd said: “The complexity of Sue’s task cannot be under-estimated, such as assessing medication to suit the individual, which is no mean task for any health professional. With Parkinsons it is the difference between independence and greatly reduced mobility.

“In a nutshell Sue Ashley has always been a smiling face and solver of medication problems and other Parkinson’-related matters, and although we are sorry to lose her we wish her well for the future.”
