District nursing between 2 World Wars

I enjoyed this book. But felt that it ended before it should have. An insight into nursing care between 2 World Wars. When patients were nursed with care and thoughtfulness, not just a number like they are in 2016.

A Wonderful journey back to Quarry Hill Leeds.

I have lived in Leeds since I left school aged 15yrs. I remember what was known as Quarry Hill flats. It filled the left side of Leeds City Centre.

Trainee nurses & coming of age

Following the lives of trainee district nurses, their oddly varied patients and family rivalries plus unexpected pregnancies. This is a fairly easy to listen to story, well narrated and very touching at times, and I would recommend it.
