Dear Colleagues

It is with deep sadness that I have to inform you of the death of one of our former students, Joy Harrild, who graduated in 2013 and was only 26 years of age. Joy was killed in a car crash on Tuesday 6th December. She was my personal tutee and so I can share with you that she was one of the sweetest, kindest and most professional of students I have had the pleasure of teaching and working with. She graduated with honours and a clinical distinction, testimony to her fantastic qualities.

Joy entered the Community Services and was based at Brookfields Hospital in Cambridgeshire where she was able to provide the highest levels of care to those most in need, a reflection of her personality and values.

We have written to her parents and if we receive details of funeral arrangements we will make those available through the School of Dentistry Office to anyone who knew her well and wishes to pay their last respects to her.

Very best wishes
