Comment on: Nurse of 56 years retires from wards
Congratulations Jean, I started my nursing in 1958 at Sefton General Hospital, Liverpool and continued my nursing in other countries after emigrating. In New Zealand, my present home, I worked in many fields of nursing and retired in 2004. I wonder if Jean's lung was removed because of tuberculosis, which was an occupational disease of nursing in the 1950-60's and for which I had 10 months sick lease during my training.
Enjoy your retirement Jean. Best Regards
from another Oldtimer.
Comment on: Work the world - my trip to Takoradi
Well done Gemma. I enjoyed reading your article, It brought back my memories of 3 exciting years at a mission hospital at Atibie/Mpraeso, Ghana 47 years ago. I hope your ;memories of the friendly, inspiring people of Ghana benefit you and last as long as mine have.
Best wishes for your future practice.

I worked in Ghana in the mid sixties and it sounds like nothing has changed in 'bush' Africa in 50 years.
