A Message From Maeve…

In our blog this week Maeve Hully has a few parting words to share with you all…

As many of you know I have left the Patient and Client council after 9½ very happy years. It’s bittersweet to leave an organisation you’ve enjoyed working for. All the people I have met and have worked with have meant so much to me.

I am proud to have been a member of the team, a team that included our staff, our board, our colleagues, our members and people right across Northern Ireland.  Together we have all been involved in some outstanding projects.  Projects that have, or will, make a genuine and lasting improvement.  The real-time feedback system, our Membership Scheme and HSC online to name but a few…

I know how lucky I have been with all of the staff and members of the public I have worked with over the years here at the Patient and Client Council.  Your commitment, your energy and your enthusiasm has been constant and infectious.  You have ensured that together we have made a difference.

There are 3 lessons I have learnt over the years that I have returned to on many occasions.

  1. The strongest voice is not always the loudest.
  2. It’s not about me, or you, but us all.
  3. If you can help someone then you should.

Thank you for your belief, your support and your friendship. None of us achieve in isolation and the successes we’ve enjoyed together have been the result of our mutual cooperation and collaboration.  It has been a pleasure and a privilege to have journeyed alongside people who are so committed to the values and beliefs of the Patient and Client Council.

In the middle of our daily business: meeting targets, initiating projects and developing new ones, it’s all too easy to lose sight of the most important elements of all, the people and the vision.  You have made sure that did not happen.

The Patient and Client Council will go from strength to strength.  Through the recently published ‘Co-Production Guide for Northern Ireland – Connecting and Realising Value through People’ your contribution is more important than ever.

Thank you,

Maeve.
