A specialist rehabilitation sister who is set to retire after 47 years has spoken of the satisfaction she gains from helping patients recover from severe brain injuries.

Lois Sherman (pictured) has worked for Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust at the Colman Centre for Specialist Rehabilitation Services, in Norwich, since 1992.

She will retire from her role on July 8 following a career which began in 1966 and which has seen her work at Royal London, Cheltenham General, Norfolk and Norwich, and Mundesley hospitals.

In her current role she helps to coordinate referrals for inpatients and outpatients who are rehabilitating from severe brain injury.

She travels to hospitals across Norfolk and Suffolk to visit patients due for transfer to the Caroline House inpatient unit, which is on the Colman Centre site.

Mrs Sherman, from North Walsham, who celebrates her 65th birthday this month, said: “I love working at the Colman Centre and have really enjoyed my time with the service. The patients we care for have complex needs, so to see them make small steps in their recovery and gradually improve is extremely rewarding.”

Mrs Sherman said she was looking forward to pursuing some of her many hobbies during her retirement.

She will also be celebrating her 37-year-old son Ross’s marriage in July, which comes just two months after her 40-year-old son Elliot’s wedding in May.

She said: “I will miss the camaraderie of working in such a fantastic team, and the buzz of interacting with patients and their families.”
