enjoyable read especially as we are of the 'same generation' so can relate to a lot of it

I hated this book. This lady is so wrapped up in the way things were done tht she could never appreciate the ecellent work that today's modern nurses do. I am a modern nurse, not a young girl but a mature entrant to the profession. I have never allowed patients to be treated inthe way the she imagines patients are treaated today, she really needs to come and see what we do. Wards are not dirty, patients are well treated by professional staff with evidence based care and yes also with TLC. Nurses today are professionals and not doctor's hand maidens like in the old days, oh sorry, have I struck a sore point. I sensed a real jealousy when I read this, Ms Woodcock has no idea. Oh, and its not funny, humerous, interesting or well written either!

Having nursed in the era written about I was captivated by having memories rekindled. A very humourous and informative book.
