We are extremely saddened to hear of the death of Professor Janet Marsden. Janet had been one of our trustees for several years and was able to give us the benefit of her vast experience of ophthalmic nursing both national and international. The WSF ethos of increasing  knowledge and skills, particularly of non medical personnel in the developing world, was considerably enhanced by Janet’s presence on the WSF board.

She was a marvellous practical teacher and her interactive lectures, delivered with much humour, were masterly. 

We are much diminished by her loss but we will build on her educational legacy for the benefit of those most in need.
