Dedicated staff celebrate long service with the NHS

Published 03/12/2015

SOME of the most dedicated staff at Derby Teaching Hospitals have been rewarded for their loyalty and long service.

More than 130 Trust workers collected awards for completing 25 or 40 years in the NHS – with some hitting the milestone after a career spent wholly in Derby’s hospitals.

In total, they have devoted 3,575 years to the health service.

Sue James, Chief Executive of Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “These staff members have devoted their careers to helping others through working in the health service. They have shown such commitment and dedication, and they truly deserve our recognition and our thanks. We have such a diverse range of people in hundreds of different roles, and it is that which makes our Trust such a special place to be.”

Each staff member to reach the milestone has been given a certificate and prize, which was presented in a ceremony at the Royal Derby Hospital yesterday.

Among those collecting awards were Chief Operating Officer Helen Scott-South, who marked 40 years with the NHS, and Cathy Winfield, Chief Nurse and Director of Patient Experience, who celebrated the 25-year milestone.

Other staff members collecting awards included nurses, theatre staff, consultants and administrators.

A total of 111 members of staff were awarded 25-year awards, and a further 20 picked up 40-year awards.
