Royal Perth Hospital staff were recognised for their long-standing contributions to our hospital and health service when they were recently presented with long service badges at a ceremony held on Thursday 12 September.

Over 300 staff members were recognised for 10, 20, 30 and 40 year badges. There were also three staff members who were recognised for an astounding 50 years of service, including the wonderful Robyn Read. Combined there was a total of 5,100 years of service to Royal Perth Hospital recognised.

Robyn began her service at Royal Perth Hospital in October 1967 and has since worked across several departments including; medical records, booked admissions medical oncology clinic before moving on to her current role as Receptionist in the Goderich Street Outpatient front desk.

Throughout her time at Royal Perth Robyn has gathered endless knowledge about the day-to-day running of her department and the wider hospital. Some patients have even referred to Robyn as “the oracle” and in one instance “the general”!

The pride and joy that Robyn takes in being part of our organisation is displayed through her interactions with staff and patients that regularly attend the hospital and outpatient services, and she is often demonstrating huge empathy towards the patients and families that have received a difficult diagnosis, or are simply overwhelmed with emotion.

Thank you to all who were recognised with long service badges for your continued service.
