Staff from the George Eliot Hospital Maternity Team joined ex staff members and Sue's daughter to say goodbye to Maternity Midwifery Assistant, Sue Slade who retired last week.
Sue was surprised to see so many people come along to celebrate her last day at the maternity Unit after over 33 years working the night shift in Maternity.
Ex midwifery staff came along to join Sue, her family and colleagues in the Drayton Ward to celebrate the start of her retirement and the end of the role she loved helping babies and their families.
Sue has worked her entire career working the night shift except for the odd day and is really looking forward to sleeping at night!
She intends to spend time with her five grandchildren and her family, reading books and spending time improving her garden.
Sue said: "I have loved working at the George Eliot and loved my job. It will be sad to leave my colleagues who work at night."
"I am looking forward to my retirement, spending more time with my family and hope to book a holiday somewhere hot very soon."
Head of Midwifery, Alison Talbot:"Sue was a highly regarded member of the maternity team and will be greatly missed by all of her colleagues.”
