Nurse of the Year – no plans to retire at 86
This October for Black History Month, we are celebrating the vibrant and diverse communities in the borough. Greenwich would not be what it is without the many histories and futures within it.
Phyllis Iwowo is 86 years-old and has worked in the NHS and lived in Greenwich for 36 years – and is still working! She is a general practice nurse in two different practices in the borough and in 2017 she won the Royal Borough of Greenwich Lifetime Achievement Award, and the award for the South East London General Practice Nurse of the year.
