Dame Averil Mansfield

Dear All I can’t find the right subject or tags for this.

I have just watched some of the Pride of Britain Awards and this lady caught me as JP pointed it out to me.

I will let you all read for yourselves but she has done so so much for so many people and deserves this so much.

I have so much respect for her not just for being a pioneer of women in the medical profession but also for her caring nature and desire for good and to be honest her longevity. Not gonna happen for me I’m not convinced I’ve got 40 left at 45 but hopefully 10-20!!

BUT for me the fact that she specialised in trying to develop tools to help surgically prevention of strokes is my jam.

I love her.

86 years young.

There are not many people I would give a shout out to for this kind of award on here as they are all very worthy but she is special special in my eyes (well 50% of them)

This woman is nearly as amazing as my girlfriend and she’s just wow even though it’s long distance at the mo.

Here is a picture of a polar bear for Dame Averil.

Amazing lady, I saw her on breakfast television yesterday, a really lovely and so modest and unassuming lady. Even after all these years she is still overwhelmed at doing a job that she truly loves.

Regards Sue


Yes she’s amazing, - doing what she loved.
