We value her input and knowledge that she has shared with us during our first fundraising activities and look forward to our partnership flourishing.
Lynne Holt became a medic who made medical history when she was appointed the UK?s first clinical transplant coordinator.
Over the course of her career, the mum-of-four has saved, supported and cared for the lives of some of the sickest people in the North East - and beyond.
Her work at Newcastle?s Freeman Hospital has seen her witness countless medical firsts, but it is perhaps for the devotion shown to families, often in their darkest hour, that she will always be remembered.
Lynne?s medical journey started 36 years ago when she was a sister in charge of Intensive Care at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge. At that time, the UK?s first heart transplant programme had just started at the hospital.
In 1986, Lynne moved to the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle where she became the UK?s first Clinical Transplant Coordinator.
After decades of supporting families, the 59-year-old retired last year but still remains heavily committed to her work as a Transplant Sport Trustee.
