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.
