Dr Mary Catterall 12th July 1922 to 4th October 2015

Mary Cotteral

Dr Catterall believed that “Many people live cut off from human contact and lead isolated lives, deprived of their human gift – speech and the other exclusively human gift is creativity – the visual arts, music, reading and writing”.

After forty years of working in NHS Hospitals as a physiotherapist, medical student, doctor and consultant, Dr Catterall believed that the most enduring medicine is encouragement and this is why she set up E.T.A.T (Encouragement through the Arts and Talking).
