Before Christmas a special luncheon was held to acknowledge long-serving members of staff. 10 staff members celebrated their tenure with representatives from the board, leadership team and their friends and family.
One member of staff being acknowledged was Medical Secretary Sheree Gray. Celebrating 40 years of service, Sheree reflected on some of the changes she has seen since joining the Medical Secretaries/Typists in 1976. "Technology has had a huge impact on the way we work. When I first started, we used a manual typewriter. If we made a mistake we would have to re-type the whole page again! Using a computer is much more efficient."
