We are all terribly saddened and shocked to hear of the sudden passing of our dear friend, Dr John Moutzouris.

John was a true gentleman. He was incredibly kind and gentle, beyond generous with a wicked sense of humour which those lucky enough to know him well got to witness.

Many of John's friends and family have asked about donations. The family have requested no flowers, however we are setting up this memorial fund. The current plan is to use the funds to establish a section dedicated to John in Liverpool Hospital library as John enjoyed working at Liverpool immensely and was particularly fond of the library, spending much of his time there.

Any leftover funds will be donated to a medical charity chosen by John's family and close friends.

All donations, big or small are much appreciated.

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the delay in updating this campaign.

I have been corresponding with Liverpool Hospital staff (including John's good friend Dr Sarah Parry) and we have just purchased two beautiful leather armchairs, chesterfield style and a lovely reclaimed timber style coffee table.

This furniture will be set up in a section of Liverpool Hospital Library dedicated to John so that the hospital staff can enjoy a sunny and comfortable place to read.

It is my understanding that some of John's books from his personal collection will also be donated to create a reading nook.

The remaining funds (approximately $6k) will be donated to Concord Clinical School for a student prize, which will continue to be awarded on an annual basis. We are still working this out with Concord.

Thank you all so much for your generous donations in memory of our much loved friend.

Johnny, prince of physicians, we will always love and remember you.

Please take care of each other.
Much love,
Jane
Johnny at work and with Dave

Hi Everyone,
Thank you so much for the support for this campaign to honour our dear friend. We have raised over $11,000 which is so fantastic and will allow for several projects to be done.

A committee member is working with Liverpool Hospital to organise the memorial section in the library. Liverpool will also take the opportunity to increase the awareness and education of their staff on doctors welfare and mental health. Since John died, we have heard of many more doctors who have taken their own lives and it seems to be an endemic problem in the medical profession. I understand there is to be a session of grand rounds about John and this issue. It's medicine's shameful secret but hopefully we can start shedding some light into these dark corners and encourage people to get help, to heal our healers.

Concord clinical school have also been fantastic and we are working with them to establish a memorial prize.

Once again, thank you all, I'll update again soon.
Have a great day and find some joy in the small things

Thank you to everyone for all the likes, shares and generous donations to this campaign. We are truly humbled by and so grateful for the support.

We know John touched many lives with his kindness, gentle nature and exceptional skill as a doctor and earlier a pharmacist.

I have opened up an account for these funds as they will be deposited overnight, and on an ongoing basis.

David Moye, who many of you know as John's shadow all throughout medical school will be soon be in touch with a few other close friends of John's, as well as John's older sister and together they will finalise the plans for this memorial fund. I hope to be able update you all soon

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any queries. Take care and find the joy in life where you can.

Thanks again,
Jane

We are so humbled by everyone's generosity and are thrilled to report that we have raised over $5,200 in just over 24 hours. Thank you, thank you, thank you ❤️❤️

Today was a sad but beautiful day as we laid our friend to rest and said our goodbyes.

There have been some great ideas for additional ways we can use excess funds including purchasing a table tennis table for the Concord Clinical school common room and establishing a scholarship prize at the medical school in John's memory.
I will continue to keep you all updated as the campaign progresses and the plans crystallise.

John is never far from our minds and our hearts, and still so many tears. I just came to check on this site to again share it so as his passing does not go in vain. $12,490 already, I can just feel how proud he would be of this achievement and overwhelmed by the support. My only wish like all those who knew and loved him would be that somehow time could be turned back just to that split second and he would have known that he wasn't alone.
