A NURSERY nurse who has cared for countless premature babies has retired after 40 years.
Linda Chetwynd has hung up her uniform following four decades of service after first starting work on the Neonatal Unit at the old Walsgrave Hospital in 1975.
Linda, from Atherstone, then joined colleagues as they moved to the University Hospital in 2005.
Speaking of her retirement, Lina said: “I’m going to miss everything and everyone, but most of all the lovely babies.
“The team in the Neonatal Unit are fantastic, it’s been a privilege to work with such a dedicated and caring team for so long.
“I’m looking forward to enjoying spending more time with my family and also plan to do a lot of travelling and enjoy myself.”
Sue Aucutt, Special and Transitional Care Manager, said Linda was loved by colleagues and said it had been ‘a genuine pleasure’ to work with her.
She added: “We’re going to miss her enthusiasm and experience in the unit, but wish her all the best in her well-deserved retirement.”
