Knowle nurse set to retire after 30 years of caring for patients

Solihull Editorial 2nd Oct, 2018   0

A CARING Knowle nurse who has spent more than 30 years looking after patients is set to retire.

Pat Munday, a Matron at Solihull’s Spire Parkway Hospital has decided to call it a day so she can spend more time with her newly-arrived grandson Freddie.

Pat, who trained at Wrexham Maelor Hospital before qualifying in 1980, has spent the last three years at Spire Parkway following a career that took her to hospitals in Gloucester, Cirencester and the West Midlands.

She said: “It has been the most amazing career I could have ever wished for. I have so many memories – one day I think I should put them all into a book Memoirs of a Matron.

“Seriously though, it is the most privileged position where you get to meet people at the most vulnerable times of their lives and hopefully impact in a positive way – I wouldn’t change a second.”

Although Pat, who lives with husband Stephen, plans to make relaxation a retirement priority she is also looking to get involved in charity work in the area.

She said: “I have worked for ChildLine in the past and that is something I would like to get involved in again and I will be looking to get involved in homeless charities in the Birmingham area.”

Of her time at Spire Parkway she said: “In the scheme of things I wasn’t there that long but I really did make some great friends who I am sure I’ll keep in touch with for a long time to come.”
