Trust honours memory of dedicated healthcare assistant

  • Comment

A tree has been planted during a special hospital memorial service to remember a former healthcare assistant at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust.

June Flint, 52, worked at Grimsby’s Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital for 20 years in various posts, latterly as an HCA before she died in January 2013.

“June had the sort of personality that raised your spirit when you saw her on duty”

Ms Flint was diagnosed with leukemia in 2011 and died in Castle Hill Hospital, Hull. She was a keen fundraiser and had raised money for Grimsby hospital and the Anthony Nolan Trust.

To keep her memory alive, her former colleagues agreed that a tree should be planted and an engraved plaque hung.

Mark Lawrence, a staff nurse who worked with Ms Flint, said: “June had the sort of personality that raised your spirit when you saw her on duty.

“This tree is the least we could do to show how much she meant to everyone,” said Mr Lawrence.

“A collection went around her friends at work which helped to pay for the tree, proceeds left over, which came to £300, have been donated to the Anthony Nolan Trust,” he added.
