Dr Jean Quinn: Deputy Chair

Jean is part of the fabric of our Wirral community.

Jean balanced her career in healthcare as a GP, a local councillor and as a member of numerous boards and committees for the promotion of health, education and the welfare of Wirral people.

She is a former non-executive director at Wirral University Teaching Hospital, Arrowe Park, cabinet member for ‘Streetscene’ at Wirral Borough Council and a lecturer at the Liverpool School of Medicine.

Jean’s association with the hospice has now come full circle. As a clinical medical officer, she helped to care for people admitted to the hospice from its earliest days, in 1983, and she has retained a keen interest in the most appropriate management of life-limiting illnesses ever since.

She is deputy chair of our board of trustees, chair of our workforce committee and is trustee lead on safeguarding strategy.

Fifty years after graduating from the University of Liverpool Jean was honoured to receive a “2020 Alumni of the Year Award” recognising her loyal service to the NHS and other local organisations.

Jean married Nick in 1967 three years before qualifying as a doctor.  Before his passing, Nick was a great support to her in everything she did, including with their five children and now, six grandchildren.

To relax, Jean takes art classes and keeps fit by swimming at a local pool a couple of times a week.

Qualifications: MBChB and Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners (FRCGP)
