We are proud to launch our online celebration of decades of dedication and service by brilliant people in the finest healthcare system the world has ever seen
For the past 73 years, the NHS has belonged to the people and been delivered by people.
I may be biased, but I’m sure you’ll forgive me when I say that – as the Trust’s Executive Director of People, OD and Inclusion – that’s why I think I have one of the very best roles it is possible to have in the NHS.
On this year’s NHS 73rd birthday, we launched our Summer Celebration of Long Service – celebrating and highlighting the contribution of over 400 members of our current staff who have devoted literally decades of their working lives to the NHS.
Congratulations to everyone receiving recognition and I hope all of you enjoy our watching our celebration as much as we have making it.
Delivered online over a 3 week period, our Summer Celebration of Long Service celebrates and highlights the contribution of over 400 members of our current staff who have devoted literally decades of their working lives to the NHS.
We have grouped them into six strands – those who have worked at least 20 years in the NHS, or 25, 30, 35, 40 or incredibly 45 years.
Each of these six groups is represented by someone who gives us a brief snapshot insight into their personal story and individual history with the NHS – why they joined, what it was like, what the NHS means to them and what it has enabled them to do.
Just these short vignettes are fascinating on their own – so they only hint at the treasure trove of memories and experience held by our people.
So… sit back, and enjoy travelling with us back through time to earlier years and earlier decades.
