Nurse on Call

Talking Book CD - 2008

Training in a hospital in the 1930s, Edith Cotterill's long hours on the wards included encouraging leeches to attach to patients (a task much harder than you might think) and the disposal in the furnace of amputated limbs. Although hospital life did have its compensations - it was there during the war that she met an injured sailor who was to become her husband. After the birth of her two daughters, Edith returned to work in the 1950s as a district nurse. Whether she was ridding ageing spinsters of fleas or dishing out penicillin and enemas, Edith always approached even the most belligerent of patients with humour, compassion and warmth.
