For more than 20 years, outpatient physiotherapist manager Pat Stephenson has been helping people at Newham University Hospital.
And now, after 35 years in the NHS, she has treated her last patient.
To mark her retirement Pat, along with her guide dog Brian, were treated to a celebration lunch at the Glen Road, Plaistow hospital.
She said: “I walk to work every day with Brian and it’s nice to be recognised by patients who live in the local community.
“I’ve enjoyed working and being part of such a good close-knit team.
“Brian and I will always treasure these memories and our time working at Newham Hospital.”
Pat, who lives in Newham, joined the hospital in 1989 and during that time has been recognised for her dedication with staff awards.
