#TeamSFH colleague, Ann, celebrates 80th birthday this week

Ann Seymour, Clinical Illustration Assistant celebrated a special birthday milestone this week – making her the eldest employee at Sherwood Forest Hospitals.

Ann, celebrated her 80th birthday virtually with her team and Trust colleagues on Monday, and was surprised to be joined by Paul Robinson, Chief Executive on the Microsoft Teams call.

Ann has worked at Sherwood for over 45 years, and reminisced about the Trust’s journey throughout her employment. She said: “It is wonderful to have spent 45 years at Sherwood; I’ve worked in numerous teams and places including Mansfield General Hospital and main reception, but to be able to celebrate my 80th birthday with the Clinical Illustration Team, albeit virtually, has been lovely. I’m grateful that despite restrictions and their busy workload, the team has taken a bit of time out of their day to wish me a happy birthday.”

Lisa McCourt, Clinical Illustration manager and Chief Medical Photographer said: “Ann is extremely popular throughout the trust for her beautiful and warm nature.  Everyone who is lucky enough to meet her recognises her for being kind, caring, compassionate and helpful.

“I have been lucky enough to work with Ann for 22 years, 17 of which have been in Clinical Illustration.  She looks after our team and we all wished she worked full time! We all wish her the happiest of birthdays and many many happy returns.”

Paul Robinson, Trust CEO, joined the virtual celebration. He said: “I’d like to thank Ann for her Sherwood and NHS service, and also wish her a happy birthday; a special birthday which makes her the eldest #TeamSFH colleague! I hope you enjoy your virtual celebration, and have a lovely birthday, and thank you for your dedication and continued support to Sherwood.”
