Monday 8 June was Sue Bungaree’s final day working in the Maternity Department at Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS FT after 48 years.
Sue came to the UK in 1972 from Mauritius aged 21. She then became a pupil nurse, State Enrolled Nurse, State Registered Nurse and then completed her midwifery training.
She was a shift co-ordinator on Central Delivery Suite for 37 years before deciding to retire and return in 2010. She has continued to work on Central Delivery Suite following her return until Monday.
As part of her retirement Sue wanted to give something back to the Central Delivery Suite so she has donated a bench and a tree for outside the staff rest area.
Kerry Reede-Field, Head of Midwifery at Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS FT said, “As a valued and such a long serving member of the team we are going to hugely miss Sue, we wish her all the best for her retirement and special birthday in July.
“I would also like to thank Sue for all of her hard work and dedication to the Maternity Team at Tameside and Glossop and also for the generous donation of the bench and tree which will make a big difference to our staff in the years to come.”
