Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Colleague born the year the NHS launched celebrates 55 years of service

Malcolm Littlewood, Interim Head of Procurement Projects at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, will turn 75 this year.

Malcolm will celebrate an amazing 55 years of NHS Service whilst celebrating the milestone birthday. Malcolm started his career in 1969 at the age of 20 as a Clerical Officer in Supplies for Middlewood Hospital in Sheffield.

“Back then the hospital was a like a little village with it’s own butchers, car wash and gardens. I stumbled into the job as a young man looking for work but enjoyed it so much I continued to work in NHS Procurement across the region for the next five decades.”

Malcolm went on to become Head of Procurement for a number of NHS Trusts including YAS, Tameside, Chesterfield and Sheffield Health and Social Care before taking up his current post after retiring (and getting bored!) two years ago.

“I’ve been around as long as the NHS and I’d like to think that I have always kept the patients we serve in mind throughout my roles. Things have changed in terms of technology helping us out but the overall principals of good procurement have not changed over the years.
