A NURSE at Truro's Duchy Hospital has said goodbye to colleagues after 28 years of service.
Linda Beck joined the hospital in 1986 as a senior staff nurse, before being promoted to ward sister in 1991.
She said: "While working at Duchy, I had the opportunity to study for a nursing diploma along with a certificate in education, which allowed me to teach nursing. I found teaching particularly rewarding. I will miss my colleagues very much but am looking forward to spending more time with my grandchildren."
She also said she planned to spend her spare time walking, cycling and camping.
