President:  Lady Mary Fagan LG, DCVO

We are delighted to congratulate Lady Mary on the recent honour bestowed upon her by Her Majesty the Queen. 

Lady Mary is President of the University of Southampton, Gift of Sight Appeal and this complements her other interests in ophthalmology, particularly her long-standing involvement with the St. John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital.

Lady Mary is involved in numerous community projects, medical and charitable bodies, both as Chairman and a member of the Managing Boards. She also maintains a keen interest in all aspects of life in Hampshire, including education, commerce, industry, the armed forces, and voluntary organisations.
