After spending months, years, or sometimes decades working for
the NHS, retirement can be both a well awaited milestone and a
cautious time of change.
No more early mornings, no more rush hour traffic, just endless
holidays and leisure…..but also friends, colleagues and being part
of the NHS can leave a huge gap.
Did you know that the NHS Retirement Fellowship
provides a combination of "retirement fun" and fellowship with
other like minded people?
The NHS RF provides the opportunity for maintaining friendships
and making new friends, plus other benefits include a range of
discounts, interest groups and holidays.
Branches already exist throughout the North East region
and they would love to welcome new members. Also, The Fellowship is
looking to start new branches associated with any of the regional
hospitals and health care centres.
So, if you are nearing retirement, and want to get
involved in the social and volunteering opportunities associated
with the Fellowship please contact the Regional Development
Officer, Leigh Elliott, for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, you can take a look at the Fellowship webpage, http://www.nhsrf.org.uk
and see where the Branches near you meet.
The Fellowship is a registered charity and already has
approximately 17,000 members across the U.K - why not join
'As I was very, very nervous, I must have been the worst patient
ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough
- could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
