Long-serving nurse Paulene Morrow hung up her uniform for the final time this week, bringing a 36-year career at Ipswich Hospital to an end.
Seventy-five-year-old Paulene said goodbye to patients and staff on Haughley Ward one last time.
Originally from Liverpool, Paulene qualified as a nurse in 1998 and prior to that worked at Ipswich in the CT Scan department and as a dark room technician in the X-ray department.
Paulene said: “The staff are amazing, they deserve medals.
“We have got such a diverse group of staff, everyone is so wonderful and supportive, and that helps you keep young.”
Paulene, who also worked on the former Westerfield Ward, will spend her retirement enjoying trips to the theatre, keeping fit at Zumba, and learning Latin at night school
She said: “It’s important that you keep yourself active and you have a responsibility to enjoy life and make the most of it.”
