Product Description

Book Description

In the bestselling tradition of Call the Midwife, an honest and moving account of working as a district nurse in 1950s England.

About the Author

Born in Belfast in July 1922, Patricia left her home town in 1944 to embark on a nursing career, beginning at Clare Hall Sanatorium, Barnet before going to train at the North Middlesex Hospital where she gained her S.R.N. Certificate in 1948. After a short period there as a Staff Nurse, she returned to Belfast to work for a year at Musgrove Park Hospital. She left for England once more to study at Sharoe Green Hospital, Preston, where she received her State Certified Midwifery Certificate in 1951, and in 1961 she was awarded the National Certificate of District Nursing.

Format: Kindle Edition
The District Nurses of today as a shadow of the DNs from yesteryear. This book shows the sheer variety of differing cases a DN would have to work with, but always with a wry subjectivity. Nowadays the District Nurses will be more swamped with their computers, trying to balance statistical analysis with leg ulcers! Good read. Stuart Townsend: Author of Asylum Bound Asylum Bound

If you enjoyed the television programme Call the Midwife then this is the book for you. An easy to read, lighthearted insiders account of the life of a district nurse and midwife in the 1950's.

I enjoyed reading about Patricia nursing in 1950's - 1960's

Loved her stories, Patricia's friendship with Margaret was lovely.

Patricia is the type of nurse we could all have looking after us.

So well written, it makes you laugh and cry and think about life, and the life of Pat Jordan. What a great woman she was, I wish nurses were still like that today. It is a first class book and would recommend it to all.
