See you in Berlin Karola

After 10 years of life in Darwen , Karola is heading back to Berlin.

Karola’s face has become familiar to many of you as one of our Senior Nurses & Reception team.

Her super efficient & very helpful nature has cared for many of you over the year, particularly as a double act with Mr Lees’!

Karola is not only a great colleague but a genuine friend to us all & there will be many tears this week.

She is, however, along with Husband Jonny returning back to one of Europe’s more successful footballing countries to be nearer her family.

Karola did toy with the idea of creating a hologram of herself to be projected above the isolation switches at work as this is her main focus of annoyance when we forget to turn them off at the end of the day . Jokes aside, it is through Karola’s diligence and patience that all our new nurses received such excellent training; & thanks to her we have a legacy of protocols that keep the surgeries organised .

Karola has mastered her own unique style of Darwen-English over her 10 year residency & once requested a ‘sleepy-sofa’ in case she was snowed in !

We reckon she meant sofa bed !!!

We are all really sad to have to say goodbye , but are looking forward to trying out her ‘sleepy-sofa’ in our 2015 holiday destination, Berlin !!!
