Linda Vickers, Sue Barlow, Maureen Stevenson, Gill Marshall and Jenny Southam have all retired after decades of work for Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust.

Jenny and Linda, both of Bessacarr, Maureen, of Scawthorpe, and Gill, of Norton, are all health visitors while Sue, of Arksey, worked in administration.

Pam Ley, RDaSH’s clinical manager for Bentley, said: “These women have worked so hard for the NHS over an astounding number of years.

“It’s really sad to see them go but I wish them all the best.”
