It is with profound regret that we must inform members that John D Hyde, former Principal at Hydes Herbal Clinic and former President of the NIMH 1979 – 1981 passed away after a short illness on Sunday 2nd February 2014.
Serene Foster, MNIMH of Hyde’s Herbal clinic writes:
“With John’s passing not only have we have lost a very good personal friend and a selfless mentor, but Herbal Medicine has lost a leading practitioner, a giant in his field, and a tireless campaigner on behalf of our profession. In this moment it is hard to see beyond the loss but we should also remember warmly his many achievements in a long career, not only with Hydes Herbal Clinic but also in his impact on the NIMH, the establishment of the training college and the development of our institute. In an appropriate time we will celebrate John’s many and important contributions in life, in science and in Herbalism.
However, at this time our thoughts are principally with immediate family; his wife Linda, children Mark, Jane and Rachael, and his grandchildren. Linda has asked us to inform you that John’s funeral has been arranged for 3pm on 13th February 2014, and those friends and colleagues who wish to pay their respects are welcome to join with the family at the Gilroes Crematorium, Leicester.”
