Derek Hoy

Derek Hoy

We are really very sad to learn that Derek Hoy died in the early hours of Saturday morning, at home and surrounded by his family (his wife Christine and their daughters Jenny and Sarah) after an illness. Derek was an immense influence on nursing informatics across Europe and beyond. A true Scotsman, his passing is an immense loss to us all. Bearing in mind his heritage, it seems fitting to remember him with the Gaelic : Ní bheidh a leithéid ann arís (His like will never be seen again).
