Trust boss to achieve 36 years’ service in NHS on the day service celebrates 70th birthday
29 June 2018

A health service boss will achieve 36 years’ service in the NHS on the day the organisation celebrates its 70th birthday.

Michele Moran, Chief Executive of Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust, will mark the milestones on 5 July 2018 with her staff.

“I joined the service as a nurse in 1982,” she said, explaining how she progressed to become a midwife and a health visitor before moving to managerial roles.

“I’ve grown up with the NHS and had the privilege of seeing it develop into the much-loved service it is today.

“It has always had a very special place in my heart and I’m looking forward to marking 36 years’ service on the exact same day it turns 70.

“For me personally and the NHS as a whole the 5 July will be a very special day.”

Ms Moran is planning to mark the milestones by travelling first to Scarborough to attend a tea party with staff working on the Trust’s new community services contract.

She will then return to the Trust’s headquarters in Willerby Hill to present certificates to the organisation’s longest-serving staff.

Later, Ms Moran will attend the Hull and East Riding Health Expo in Hull before attending a choral concert at York Minster to mark the NHS’s special day.

Tea parties will be held at Trust HQ and at Whitby, and staff throughout the organisation have been asked to have a cuppa to raise money for its charity, Health Stars.

In an echo of the national push to light up national landmarks in blue – ‘light up blue’ - the Trust’s 2,500 staff are also being encouraged to take part in a ‘best in blue’ competition.

The organisation is certain to have a big presence at this year’s Hull and East Riding Health Expo, a free public event scheduled to be held between 10am and 3pm at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Ferensway, Hull.

The Trust’s Hull Memory Clinic, health visiting and school nursing service, mental health liaison service and addictions service will be among the Trust teams running stalls at an event expected to draw thousands of people.

“5 July is gearing up to be a wonderful day and I hope our staff and the public enjoy it,” said Ms Moran.

“The NHS deserves to be in the spotlight as it celebrates 70 years of public service.”
