Gladys Deans retired from the hospital in November 2012 after 24 years loyal service.
Gladys worked in the Outpatients Department and was held in high regard by Consultants, patients and colleagues alike.
She received gifts of jewellery from Dr Stewart and her colleagues to mark her retirement.
Mrs Dallas, Hospital Director, wished Gladys a long and happy retirement from all her many friends at the North West Independent Hospital. It was a pleasure to have Gladys as an employee all these years. She was a very professional and committed employee and will be greatly missed.
Gladys enjoyed her years at the hospital and said, 'I would like to thank Dr Stewart and all the staff for their gifts and kind words. It was a pleasure to work for the North West Independent Hospital, a company who show the same amount of care towards their staff as they do towards their patients'.
