‘Remarkable’ Ethel Armstrong, 87, honoured with MBE for services to NHS and retirees

Ethel Armstrong, 87, has been given the gong in the Queen’s New Year honours for her long-standing service to the NHS and retirees. The retired Durham health worker was serving as a cadet nurse on the day the NHS was established in July 1948 and went on to have a distinguished career. She worked in various parts of the country, mainly in radiography and radiotherapy, and retired as tutor/adviser to the Breast Screening Service in Liverpool in 1989.
