Colleagues have said farewell to Staff Nurse Patricia Barclay, who has retired after 31 years in the NHS. Patricia started her nursing career in 1984 in Glasgow’s Southern General Hospital before moving to Cowglen Hospital, Glasgow upon qualifying as an enrolled nurse in 1986.
Patricia then joined NHS Forth Valley in February 1988, working initially at Bellsdyke Hospital before redeployment saw her move to Falkirk and District Royal Infirmary.
Patricia has spent most of her career working in older people’s services and long term care of the elderly. She worked on Ward 11, and then subsequently Ward 12, which became Unit 2 rehab on the change to Falkirk Community Hospital where she continued to work.
