An Angus nurse celebrated three decades of NHS service at a retiral presentation on Tuesday, January 25 at the Macmillan Day Centre at Stracathro.

Anne Pender, who lives in Forfar, began nursing training in 1986 at Stracathro Hospital.

She spent her entire nursing career at the hospital and has seen many developments and improvements on the site.

Over the 30 years Anne has held various nursing posts in the hospital before joining the team at the Macmillan Day Centre at Stracathro as a cancer support nurse in 2000.

In her most recent position as a charge nurse at the centre Anne has helped and cared for many patients and their families within Palliative Care Services.

In her retirement Anne is looking forward to spending time with her family as well as using some of her free time to enjoy her garden.

Friends and colleagues joined Anne at a tea party to mark her retirement.

Helen Dryden, the palliative care clinical lead with Angus Community Health Partnership, presented Anne with jewellery on behalf of her many friends and family.
