North East

Madeline has enjoyed a 55-year career in the NHS, having started out as a cadet nurse in Hull in 1964 and having qualified in 1969. She has worked as a staff nurse, scrub nurse and Sister, but by her own admission, Madeline’s career highlight was being chosen to work as part of the team which established a new cardiac unit for Hull and East Yorkshire. Madeline has continued to work in cardiac theatres at Castle Hill Hospital until her retirement this year; 47 years in total.

"I heard about Madeline through a contact at the NHS. The service she has given to the NHS and her patients and colleagues shows true dedication and really stood out to me. She thoroughly deserves her ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ and I send her my congratulations."
