A very special, pivotal team member who played a key part in the formation of the wound clinic at Northam Hospital, recently retired.

Lyn Pittaway started as a nurse in the the ulcer clinic 28 years ago and has seen the hospital develop and go through many changes. 

Before she arrived in Northam, the nurse worked all around WA in Boddington, Narrogin, Kondinin, Gascoyne Junction and York. 

A farewell morning tea was held for Lynn on her last day at the hospital. 

Lynn’s colleague made a speech during the event. 

“She is a great nurse taking great care in her work,” she said. “If we didn’t know something, Lynn would spend ages researching and find an answer. 

“She has amazing knowledge and advice and has been a great listener to patients and staff.”

Lynn said she had enjoyed her career, during her retirement speech. 

“The wound clinic was my forte and I really did put a lot of effort into it,” she said. 

“I think it’s paid off in the end and I would just like to thank everybody who has worked with me.”
