A Fife podiatrist is being recognised for her work

Lynne Parsons was involved with developing a new hub which prioritises patients who need greater care. 

Lynne Parson has worked in the area for 30 years and has been awarded the Meritorious Award from the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists for Services to the Podiatry Profession.

Only five professionals are recognised each year for their outstanding service in these awards. 

Lynne was involved in the development of a new musculo-skeletal triage hub helps get patients the most appropriate treatment in the shortest time possible. 

Lynne said she was shocked to learn of her award: 

“Initially I was surprised but I am very honoured. I was nominated by colleagues in Fife and references were also given by podiatry colleagues across Scotland. 

"It is very humbling to be recognised by your peers and I do not think there is a greater honour than being recognised by your peers. 

"Over the last thirty years I have worked alongside a lot of excellent clinicians in Fife and we have been very lucky to have them.”
