More than 190 staff at the Gorleston hospital received a certificate, paperweight and badge for completing either 25 or 40 years' service during presentation ceremonies.

Also recognised were 47 staff who had clocked up similar levels of service both at the Paget and other NHS organisations.

It is the first time that the trust has staged long service awards, which were hosted by trust chief executive Christine Allen and chairman David Wright in the hospital's Burrage Centre.

Mrs Allen said: 'Our staff are committed to providing high quality care and go the extra mile for our patients – and it is their dedication which has resulted in us being rated as a 'good' hospital by the Care Quality Commission.

'To give 25 or 40 years of service is a significant achievement.'
