RECEPTIONIST Laura Miller, who has given a warm welcome to thousands of Bo’ness patients over the past 35 years, retired from Kinglass Medical Practice last Friday.

She was the longest-serving of all staff, including doctors, and her sister Mary Denton, a domestic help. Mum-of-one Laura, (62), who stays at Forthview Crescent with husband John, used to work at the Rosemount Practice. Asked the secret of enjoying three and a half decades in her work, she said: “I think it’s the people. I’ve known them all my life.

“Really meeting and greeting has been my favourite part of the job. We pride ourself on the friendly atmosphere we have always had.”

Practice manager Alison MacKenzie said: “Patients and staff alike have greatly benefitted from her wisdom and experience.”
