With over 1100 years of NHS service between them, staff in Wakefield, from the South West Yorkshire Mental Health NHS Trust, have been congratulated on their long service at a special event.
At a ceremony held at Fieldhead, Wakefield, 42 members of staff from Wakefield and the five towns received certificates and gifts in recognition of their hard work over the years.
