1,690 Years' Combined Long Service Celebrated At NHS Staff Loyalty Awards

Long serving NHS staff who work in communities across Lincolnshire have been praised for their dedication at a special awards afternoon tea.

The 69 staff from Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) have chalked up an impressive 1,690 years' service between them.


Each person has achieved either 20, 30 or 40 years' continuous service.

LCHS chair Elaine Baylis said: "I would like to thank each of these individuals for the dedication they have shown to their professions. It's always very heartwarming to hear about their experiences of working in the NHS, and particularly those who have spent their years with patients and families in Lincolnshire. It's a pleasure to be able to help them celebrate their loyal service."
