An engineer who helped build the Royal Free Hospital and has worked there for 40 years has been honoured for long service.
Maintenance craftsman John Coughlan was awarded for his dedication by the trust in charge of the Hampstead hospital.
The grandfather-of-three was 15 when he was employed as a plumbing labourer to work on the construction of the Pond Street building in 1972.
He then worked for the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust for 40 years.
He said: “It’s an achievement to have been here all this time.
