With over 3115 years of NHS service between them, a group of Barnsley staff from South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust are to receive their long service awards at an event held on Monday 11th November.
The Trust greatly values the contribution of its staff and believes that it is important to formally recognise their achievements and commitments and the Long Service Awards are just one of the ways that it does this.
The group of 124 staff – who have all worked for 25 years and more in the NHS – work at a range of community and mental health services across Barnsley.
Among the group are 5 members of staff who will be collecting their long service awards for 40 years or more.
The long serving staff are due to be presented with certificates and gift vouchers at a special event held at Barnsley Football Club.
Trust chief executive Steven Michael said, “This event is a great opportunity for our Trust to thank our long serving staff for their remarkable contribution to the NHS. Their hard work and dedication helps to improve the lives of so many people in our local community. I’m delighted to present these awards as a token of the Trust’s appreciation of the commitment and dedication shown by these members of staff.”
The 124 staff receiving their award are among a group of 283 Trust staff receiving their long service awards across Barnsley, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield, amassing 6176 years service between them.
