Overview

An intimate look at the impact of the National Health Service, NHS, on the United Kingdom - with profound insights for modern nurses.

Journey with Jean Audrey Wilson from her first day in nurse training to practising as a Queen's Nurse. On the way encounter, the plagues of TB, polio and a lethal smog that killed thousands.

Dealing with lords, meths-drinkers, children in firework fights, drunken dockers, pearly kings and queens, and prostitutes were all in a day's work.

Both tragic and heart-warming, this is also an historical account of Londoners recovering from the Great Depression and two world wars.
