Husband and wife celebrate 25 years service

A husband and wife are this week celebrating 25 years service with the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Trust – on the day of their 14th wedding anniversary.

Ann and Steve Moir met at Cromer Hospital when Ann was a sister in Outpatients and Steve was a porter. On Wednesday evening (8 December) they will be among 34 staff who received certificates and cheques for £200 to mark their long service.  

Ann now works with specialist health visitors at NNUH, assessing elderly patients for continuing care, while Steve is an orthopaedic technician in the Fracture Clinic.  

“I suppose it is a long time to work together but we don't see each other that often when we’re at work,” said Ann. “Even at, Cromer which is a smaller hospital, I was working at one end of the building and Steve at the other.  

“In all I’ve worked 35 years with the NHS, having done my training in London, and I’m still learning! I have recently undertaken the last module of a Master’s degree in Health Sciences.  

Steve is also happy to have stayed with the NHS: “We are constantly developing new techniques in the Plaster Room and we are always too busy to be bored.”  

Also among the staff receiving long service awards is the Trust’s Medical Director, cardiac specialist Dr Iain Brooksby.
