Exercise Referral – A tribute to Sue Meyer

A truly inspirational person was lost to us when Sue Meyer sadly passed away on 12th March following her battle against Motor Neurone Disease.

Sue was one of the first fitness instructors to join the Exercise Referral Team in 2005 (originally known as Prescription For Health) and she worked for 18 years on the programme until her retirement in June 2013.

In the early 1990s her previous experience in Health Promotion in the community as a 'Look After Yourself' tutor, and a Seated Exercise instructor for Elderly Services gave her a broad base of knowledge and experience for her new role. The enthusiasm and dedication that Sue applied to her work over the years has undoubtedly been a key factor to the success and development of the programme.

Her level of client care was exemplary - nothing was ever too much trouble, and Sue applied herself to the job using a huge amount of common sense and patience until she acquired the professional qualification of G.P. Referral Fitness Instructor in 2005 with the rest of the team. Since then she continued to develop her professional standards to a high level to improve the quality of her work.

As a member of the team Sue was a natural leader and mentor and was always willing to share her knowledge and experience with others. She was also a true friend to us all, helping to solve everyday problems with her wonderful sense of humour, patience, kindness and sound common sense.

She was also a great role model and was one of the fittest people I know, with her unstinting efforts to raise funds for Jersey Hospice through the numerous cycle challenges she undertook.

Sue has touched the lives and hearts of many people and she will be remembered with great affection by all her friends and colleagues at Exercise Referral and Fort Regent.
