After 38 years’ service Clinical Nurse Specialist and Anticoagulation Manager, Suki Boparai has retired and is looking forward to a well-deserved rest.
Suki, from Wolverhampton, started her training at Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust. When she qualified, she worked on Beech Ward in the old South Wing and went over to Goscote for a number of years before returning to the Manor on AMU, Maple Ward and Ward 4. For the last 18 years she has developed the Anticoagulation Service.
The mother-of-two said: “What I have enjoyed most during my career is working with some fantastic teams over the years where I have made friends for life. I also enjoyed developing the Anticoagulation Service to the first-class patient service it is now.”
Suki, aged 56, said: “I will be returning for two days so I am still happy I get to see and work with an amazing team.”
Sarah Smith, Anticoagulation Nurse said: “Working with Suki has allowed me to learn so much over the years. She is a great role model, and I am proud to also call her a good friend. We have had lots of memorable times both work and socially related. Her reduced presence will be significantly felt by both the team and the patients.”
During her retirement Suki is planning to visit the gym, travel and go on more nights out.
