Nurse hon­oured with long-ser­vice award

The Oban Times - - News -

A LOCHABER woman has re­ceived an award for her long ser­vice in the nurs­ing pro­fes­sion.

The Queen’s Long Ser­vice Cer­tifi­cate and Badge was pre­sented to Ch­eryl McIn­tosh by the Queen’s Nurs­ing In­sti­tute for Scot­land at a cer­e­mony on Oc­to­ber 9 in Ed­in­burgh.

Dur­ing her ca­reer, Ch­eryl was the Queen’s dis­trict nurse in Ar­gyll, Lorn and Lochaber.

An­gela said: ‘Ch­eryl no­tably spent her work­ing life in the nurs­ing pro­fes­sion, hav­ing been su­per­in­ten­dent in Fort Wil­liam lat­terly in her ca­reer. In June 2009, she re­ceived the MBE from the Queen for vol­un­tary ser­vices for Lochaber.’

Ch­eryl, right, is pic­tured with her friend Philis Knox, left, a re­tired nurse from the Belford Hos­pi­tal, Fort Wil­liam, and An­gela MacDonald, the Queen’s dis­trict nurse vis­i­tor for In­ver­ness and Rosshire. The women re­cently had af­ter­noon tea at the Moor­ings Ho­tel, Banavie, to cel­e­brate Ch­eryl’s hon­our. The award is given to com­mu­nity nurses com­plet­ing 21 years of ser­vice.
