Droitwich hospital praises long-standing staff for combined 135 years service

Droitwich Editorial 18th Jun, 2024   0

A DROITWICH hospital has celebrated the long-standing service of five of its staff members who have worked for the health group for a combined 135 years.

The award ceremony at Droitwich Spa Hospital praised the staff who hold various positions across the hospital from administrators to theatre practitioners, ward nurses to housekeepers, and patient liaison officers to physiotherapists.

Each of them has been celebrated by their employer for being ‘fundamental’ members of the team.

The hospital, part of Circle Health Group, employs 172 members of staff – many of whom liven in Droitwich Spa and the wider Worcestershire area.

One of the workers presented with an award started their career at the hospital as a Brine Pool Attendant back in 1989 and now, 35 years later, is still working at the hospital as a Materials Lead in their Stores Department.

They held the awards service at Churchfields Farm in Salwarpe, to support a local business and to give the team an extra treat.

Claire Davenport, executive director at Droitwich Spa Hospital is very proud of her work force and the support and dedication they show to her, their colleagues, the hospital, and most importantly to their patients.

She said: “We hold events for LongService Awards twice a year and each time I feel so proud of our employees.

“We feel it is important to recognize their loyalty and reward them for their commitment to our hospital.

“Each and every department has a vital role to play, and I thank all of our staff for the years of service they have given to the company.”
