A NURSE for over 40 years has just retired from Lagan Valley Hospital.

Elizabeth Wilson, who has worked at LVH for three decades, worked more recently in the Medical Assessment Unit. Sharon Skillen, MAU 3, said that Elizabeth, who she described as 'warm and 'caring', will be sorely missed.

"We'll miss Elizabeth's unique sense of humour and she really did look after us � her home baking made many a day a bit brighter," she said.

She is honest, warm, caring and hardworking, all the things that make a great nurse and a great colleague.

"We would just like to thank her for all her hard work over the years and wish her all the best for her future, which includes more time with her family, especially her beloved grandchildren and for her charity work and fundraising, which she has always done with great energy and commitment.

"We hope Elizabeth will come back to see us � and maybe do a few shifts."

Hospital staff both past and present took Elizabeth out for a meal, and she was also presented with flowers and gifts to mark her retirement.
