Well done Beryl on 25 years' service!

Huge congratulations to administrator Beryl Youren who has notched up 25 years' service at Lakeside Healthcare at Stamford.

She was first "head-hunted" after a chance meeting with Dr Gavin Kelly at the supermarket, originally joining as a part time receptionist in 1997. She worked at St Mary's for the majority of her career before joining the admin team at Sheepmarket 18 months ago.

'I am in admin data support and my main job, which I love, is registering the new babies. It is lovely to ring the mums up and see what they have named their newborns. When I first started I was a part time receptionist and so it was all paper notes. I used to order the stationery and do a bit of everything. Now everything is computerised and there is a lot of coding, scanning and filing so things have definitely changed over the years. The admin team is a lovely group to be a part of. I work three days a week, which gives me time to enjoy my hobbies of swimming and singing. I am definitely a people person and like the contact I have with the patients. Who would have thought that a chance conversation in a supermarket so many years ago would lead to such a varied and enjoyable career?!'
