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

The 56 staff from Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) have chalked up an impressive 1,370 years’ service between them.

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

Among those celebrating 30 years is Andrew Houghton, clinical team leader for out-of-hours at Grantham Hospital, while clinical nurse specialist Suzanna Kinder, healthcare support worker Elaine Scott and podiatrist Denise Wilson are marking 20 years.

LCHS chairman Dr Don White 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.”
