A nurse who celebrated her 83rd birthday on September 1st said that she has continued working for the NHS because she “didn’t want to” retire.

Monica Bulman, who works at Torbay Hospital, began her career in the NHS aged 19 in 1952.

Mrs Bulman said she still loves her job but misses the 1950s uniform because it was “much more glamorous”.

“I’m always happy at work – I just don’t have down days when I’m at work,” she added.

Ms Bulman, who is originally from Sailsbury and has three grandchildren, spends 15-20 hours each week in the ward.

“I love my job, each and every part of it. Being a nurse brings me so much pleasure and keeps me on my toes,” Mrs Bulman said.

After 64 years as a nurse, Mrs Bulman said the main change is technology.

“Although we now have much more paperwork to compete, it is fantastic that with the technology we can now look up our patient’s X-rays and test results at the click of a button rather than having lengthy waits for the information,” she said.
