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.

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.

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
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.
