Walking forwards, Looking back PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dave Foster   
Sorry but you have missed this centreTalk In May 2016 our speaker is Dinah Latham. Dinah tells the story of a retired district nurse and midwife reflecting on her life whilst walking with her close companion Harriet, the dog. You will both laugh and cry as Dinah recounts many moving stories of patients cared for in 1960s London. The writings so patently contrast care in the community then and now that it becomes impossible not to regret the passing of a time when nursing was seen as a vocation, when nurses were proud to serve.
