From Dunfermline to London recounts the detailed memoirs of a nurse training in the 1950s with the NHS in its infancy. The book combines fascinating and often humorous insights into nursing with personal and touching accounts of patients from all walks of life. Jeanie Traynor Maltby acquired a reputation as a storyteller amongst her nursing friends and regaled her six grandchildren with colourful stories of her training and life as a nurse in Scotland and then London. With excellent detail, a sharp wit and a profound commitment to nursing, these stories contain both humour and poignancy. This informative book also provides a personal perspective on the beginnings of the NHS. From a fever ward in Dunfermline to a general hospital in Edinburgh, and from midwifery in Lewisham to residences of the rich and famous in London, these stories will captivate readers. Inspired by Bill Bryson and Jennifer Worth, From Dunfermline to London will appeal to readers interested in nursing.
