A total of 131 staff from NHS Forth Valley, who had notched up 2,670 years of service between them, attended the second of two special award ceremonies. They included seven employees who each had 40 years NHS service.
All were presented with a specially-designed certificate and a pin badge.
Alex Linkston, Chairman of NHS Forth Valley, said: “It was a great pleasure and a privilege to present these awards to staff and to have the opportunity to personally thank them for the contribution they have made to the NHS during their long and dedicated service.”
Jane Grant, Chief Executive of NHS Forth Valley added: “The staff who attended the award ceremony came from many different professions and it was fascinating to hear about their careers and some of the changes they had witnessed in the NHS over the last 40 years.”
