Wades' wood

Diane Wade (previously Butland)

Add to this grove

Wades wood is to celebrate the many MANY years dedicated to the NHS by our friend Diane Wade
(formerly Butland). Diane has always been impossible to buy for, but what better way to celebrate her retirement than to help reforest such a beautiful area of Scotland. It is being started by the Foot Health Team,
her comrades in arms, but we hope that others will add to it. Hey, lets plant a FOREST!
Thanks Di, for all the laughs, for keeping us all in order, and for teaching us all. Thanks for your tireless hard work, the bad nicknames and the stupid practical jokes. We are all gradually getting used to you not being in clinic, although for a while the decibel level had dropped so much that we thought we had all gone deaf!
You are missed by all of us, staff and patients alike. From now on, a little bit of Scotland will be forever yours!
