After 21 years in NHS Forth Valley, Mary Orzel is now spending her retirement pursuing several new interests. These include bell ringing, becoming a member of the Canal Society and a ladies cycling club, and spending more time with her grandchildren Heather and Fraser.
Mary started as a capital accountant in 1996 and then moved to the role of Management Accountant in the Medical Directorate. In 2004, she was appointed as Service Manager in the Medical Directorate before moving to the post of Cancer Services Manager in the Clinical Facilities Unit. Her contribution to improving cancer services has been immense.
Mary, pictured fourth from left, was presented with several gifts from colleagues. They included earrings and a necklace, a voucher for afternoon tea at a luxury hotel, a gardening voucher and gardening gloves.
