With over 2375 years of NHS service between them, a group of staff from South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust received their long service awards at an event held on Monday 30th November.
The Trust greatly values the contribution of its staff and believes that it is important to formally recognise their achievements and commitments. The Long Service awards are just one of the ways that it does this.
The group of 42 staff who have all worked for 25 years or more in the NHS, work at a range of community, mental health and learning disability services across Barnsley, Wakefield, Calderdale and Kirklees. Among the group are 15 members of staff who have worked for the Trust for 40 years or more.
The long serving staff were presented with certificates and gift vouchers at a special event held at Normanton Golf Club. Trust chair Ian Black 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 was delighted to present these awards as a token of the Trust’s appreciation of the commitment and dedication shown by these members of staff.”
