I am saddened to inform you of the death of our dear friend and colleague, Jane Hopkins, who passed away surrounded by her loving family after a courageous battle with cancer.  Jane's sociable personality, sense of humour, fun and boundless energy will be sorely missed by us all. 

Jane joined the Wound Healing Team in 1992 and has been a member of the wound family since that time. A tribute VIDEO has been created has been created in Jane’s memory.  Jane, a kind, caring and treasured family woman, a cherished colleague, and friend, will be sorely missed by her work family, but never will she be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to have known her. 
 
Jane’s funeral is being held at 11.00 am on Thursday, September 1st at Thornhill Crematorium, Cardiff CF14 9UA.
