UHCW Nursery Nurse Linda ChetwyndA popular Nursery Nurse has retired after 40 years of caring for countless premature babies in Coventry and Warwickshire.

Linda Chetwynd, from Atherstone, first started working at the old Walsgrave Hospital in 1975, before later moving with colleagues in to University Hospital in 2005.

Linda said: “I’m going to miss everything and everyone, but most of all the lovely babies.

“The team in the Neonatal Unit are fantastic, it’s been a privilege to work with such a dedicated and caring team for so long.”

She is now looking forward to putting her feet up, adding: “I’m looking forward to enjoying spending more time with my family and also plan to do a lot of travelling and enjoy myself.”

Sue Aucutt, Special and Transitional Care Manager, said: “Linda is loved by all her colleagues and it has been a genuine pleasure to work with her. We’re going to miss her enthusiasm and experience in the unit, but wish her all the best in her well-deserved retirement.”
