Nurses Never Run is an account of my time as a student nurse at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. I wrote it for our grandchildren to read one day in the future when I may no longer be around to answer questions, so it includes the story of how I met and fell in love with their Grandpa. I was persuaded to publish and am donating all the proceeds from sales to The Sick Children’s Trust, specifically the houses in Cambridge.
Nurses Never Run is about facing life’s challenges, about caring, Cambridge, fun, frustrations, romance, and the patients I shall never forget. It is based on the letters I wrote at the time. I do not claim to have written a literary masterpiece, but am delighted to discover readers, both male and female, find the book engrossing, thought provoking, funny and moving. I have been completely honest. I wanted my autobiography to bring both the caring vocation of nursing and the 1960s vividly back to life.
