Colleagues threw a leaving lunch for HCA Anita Abrams who left the Trust after almost 30 years.
Maggie Shepley said: " Anita was a very valued member of the Medical outpatient team who was also always willing to move to help out in other outpatient areas. Anita always showed a lot of compassion to all our patients and was well respected in the team. She will be very much missed by patients and her colleagues alike.
"Staff arranged a lovely leaving lunch for Anita where she received many gifts and good wishes for the future."
