Lida's a lovely longserver, say her team.

"When you think Appointment Centre/Clinic Admin you think Lida Brambles."

That quote came from her colleague Fatima Saleem who wanted to shout out about Lida's 40 Years at the Trust as she is so special and loved by her team.

Fatima wrote to Comms:  " Lida's worked for the Trust for forty years and what she doesn't know about clinic admin isn't worth knowing.  She lives her work (and home) life in permanent fast forward and rarely takes her allocated lunchtime or generally finishes at the time she's supposed to.

"And if you know Lida's catching the shuttle back to Halifax give her a wide berth as she'll have given herself a generous twenty seconds leeway not to miss it!!  Not always successfully needless to say!.

" A dedicated wife to Colin and very proud mum of Richard and James and loyal friend to many in the Trust.  But if you see Lida learning to knit it's a sad day as it means that she's planning to retire.  Long may we not see you knitting Lida!!"
