AN outpatient staff nurse at Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital has been honoured for 30 years’ service.

Debra Duff started work in Hove as a staff nurse on the night shift before being made up to the first E-Grade staff nurse post.

She was later then promoted to position of sister at the hospital, which is in Warren Road, Woodingdean.

Debra said: “Gosh it sounds such a long time.

“The main thing which has kept me at Nuffield Health all these years has been the team.

“Obviously people have come and gone over the years but the one thing that remains is the camaraderie – we’re like one big family.

“I couldn’t think of a better place to work.”
