Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals celebrates its long-serving colleagues at afternoon tea

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH) has hosted a series of wholesome afternoon tea events to honour and celebrate long-serving employees who have dedicated their time and expertise to the hospitals and the NHS.

These three special afternoon tea celebrations, hosted at Mount Pleasant Hotel, Ye Olde Bell and Pastures Lodge, were a thank you gesture to colleagues who had recently completed milestones in their service, for their unwavering commitment and outstanding contributions to healthcare.

Colleagues who had achieved the 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 year milestones within the last two years were invited to the exclusive events, hosted by members of the Trust’s Board of Directors.

Zoe Lintin, Chief People Officer at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals, said: “Throughout the years, these dedicated professionals have demonstrated a remarkable level of devotion and dedication, providing exceptional care to patients and their families, or working in support roles to keep services running smoothly for those who need them.

“They are the backbone of our Trust and these afternoon tea events were just one of the ways we express our gratitude and admiration for their hard work.”

Guests at the events were treated to an array of finger sandwiches and sweet treats including cakes and scones which they enjoyed whilst reminiscing about their time at DBTH, milestones in their careers and cherished memories of working in the health service.

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals has recently relaunched its Long Service programme which, as well as the afternoon tea events, presents members of the team with commemorative badges for milestones in service and gift vouchers for those who reach 40 years and 50 years of service.
