An NHS healthcare nurse is hanging up his scrubs after more than four decades serving Worcestershire residents.
Pete Stenson has led the Worcestershire Primary Care Trust nursing team at the John Anthony Centre in Worcester for 40 years and is taking a well deserved retirement at the end of this week.
Practice development nurse, Anita Griffiths, said: “Pete has provided expert nursing care to patients who access our sexual health services as well as training and supporting nurses to become specialists in sexual health care.”
She continued: “He will be missed for his vision, his exemplary nursing and his passion and commitment to his role, as well as his unique sense of humour which is appreciated by both patients and staff alike."
As a student nurse, Pete first joined the sexual health clinic in 1969, after completing his training.
Pete said, “I have enjoyed my time in the NHS but I am looking forward to retirement.”
The John Anthony Centre on the Newton Road in Worcester is a sexual health clinic which provides a free and confidential service to people of all ages and backgrounds across Worcestershire.
