A Homerton Hospital “legend,” whose work had a huge impact on the lives of many Hackney residents, is retiring after 38 years on the job.
Glenn Ixer’s work as an occupational therapy technician has seen him visit thousands of homes in the borough, installing equipment and adapting patients’ homes to help them return from hospital and live as independently and safely as possible.
Charlotte Dingle, Glenn’s colleague at Homerton said: “Glenn has been a Homerton Legend for almost four decades.
“He always has a smile and a friendly word to share, and his expert technical advice is flawless.
“We don’t know what we’ll do without him!”
