A NURSING veteran was among those celebrating the 70th anniversary of the NHS at a special event in Stockton-on-Tees.
87-year-old Sheila Bradley was joined by members of Teesside’s health services for the celebration at The Beeches Care Home, on Green Lane.
Sheila was an NHS mental health nurse for over 30 years, having trained at Newcastle University and worked at North Tees Hospital.
Now living at The Beeches, she presented goodie bags as a thank you gift to members of the North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust district nursing team, community matrons, GPs and dentists.
The bags contained wine, chocolates, face masks, notepads and pens as well as a personal thank you card to each of the attendees.
