Karen Heads for A New Career

Karen Heads for A New Career

Colleagues have said farewell to Staff Nurse Karen Robertson, who has retired after 32 years in the NHS. Karen started her nursing career as an enrolled nurse at Falkirk and District Royal Infirmary and worked in Bellsdyke and Bonnybridge Hospitals before returning to Unit 4 in what is now Falkirk Community Hospital.

Karen has always worked within care of the elderly and her achievements include improvement work for patients suffering dementia.

Senior Charge Nurse Avril Bruce said: “Karen is a very caring and compassionate person and all the patients love her. She will be a big loss to the team and greatly missed by colleagues. I wish her all the best for the future.”

Karen may be retiring from nursing, but she won’t be putting her feet up just yet, as she is starting a new job with Marks and Spencer. Colleagues are already after her staff discount!  Karen is also looking forward to spending more time with husband Findlay, daughters Kirsty and Linzi and granddaughter Robyn.
