A Book of Remembrance
It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of David Ferguson, former NES Board Secretary, on Thursday 19th November 2020 after a sudden illness. Our deep condolences are with David’s family and friends, including the many NES staff he worked with.
David retired at the end of 2019 after a long NHS career which began in the early 1980s when he joined one of NES’s predecessor bodies, the National Board for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting for Scotland. David was NES’s Board Secretary from the organisation’s creation in 2002 until his retirement last year. David’s quiet professionalism, calm approach and wealth of knowledge played a key role in establishing the NES we know today. He will be very much missed.
We have set up this online book of condolence to allow staff to share their memories of and tributes to David so we can pass these onto his wife Margaret, who many of you also know from her time with NES, and his children Amy, Jamie and Annika and their families.
