Proud NHS staff celebrate long service
84 MEMBERS of staff from York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, who, between them, have clocked up over 2,300 years of service, were invited to be honoured at this year’s Long Service ceremony in York.
The annual event took place on Thursday 8 June at the Monk Bar Hotel, York, where chief executive, Patrick Crowley, paid tribute to the dedicated and caring staff from across the Trust - many of whom have spent much of their working lives in the National Health Service.
Individuals honoured at the event were those who have reached their 25 and 40 year service milestones.
Speaking about the awards Patrick said: “These awards recognise outstanding commitment to duty and I would like to congratulate and thank each recipient for their valuable years of service.
“These awards offer us a great opportunity to recognise the tremendous achievements of staff from all areas of the organisation including those working in our clinical, non-clinical and in the community.
“Our staff are without doubt our greatest asset and work extremely hard to provide the very best possible care to our patients. Each and every one of them is a credit to our service and the public they serve.”
A similar event will be hosted in Scarborough in July, were a further 36 staff from the East Coast have been invited to celebrate clocking up over 1,000 years between them.
