The NHS and those who work in it have never been more important. Doctors, medical professionals, managers, administrators, paramedics… and nurses. Ordinary people, doing extraordinary jobs. This is the memoir of just one such person, a nurse. From her origins and first days as a trainee nurse, all the way through to her position as Matron/Head of Services, Philomena Srawley brings to life the story of her nursing career with hilarious, touching and sometimes troubling stories. Set in the context of her life and loves — in fact, her three marriages — this is an enjoyable and heart-warming account of the life of a nurse.
