We are very sorry to announce that Jackie Powell died on 4th February 2024. Jackie worked in Queen Square for 42 years in the photographic department, having joined after she left school aged 17 in 1966, until her retirement as a Senior Medical Photographer in 2008.

She was also an active member of the Ladies’ Samaritan Society, as well as a valued volunteer in Queen Square Archives for many years, and was an inspiration to the many colleagues and students with whom she worked.
