Call Me Sister: District Nursing Tales from the Swinging Sixties by Jane Yeadon
Synopsis: Who’d have thought a missing bacon rasher and a teaspoon would play a part in advancing someone’s career?
It’s the late 60s and Jane Yeadon has always wanted to be a district nurse. Staff nursing in a ward where she s challenged by an inventory driven ward sister, she reckons it s time to swap such trivialities for life as a district nurse.
Independent thinking is one thing, but Jane’s about to find that the drama on district can demand instant reaction; and without hospital back up, she s usually the one having to provide it. She meets a rich cast of patients all determined to follow their own individual star, and goes to Edinburgh where Queen Victoria’s Jubilee Institute s nurse training is considered the crème de la crème of the district nursing world.
Call Me Sister recalls Jane’s challenging and often hilarious route to realising her own particular dream.
