Charity launches calendar to celebrate district nursing heritage

  • Comment

The community nursing charity Queen’s Nursing Institute has released its calendar for 2015, featuring nursing photographs from the early years of the NHS.

The main illustrations are vintage photographs rediscovered last year in the home of a former district nurse, which have not been seen for several decades. They show nurses at work in London and in Norfolk.

The calendar also includes cartoons taken from issues of the Queen’s Nurses’ Magazine during the First World War, recipes for convalescents and questions from Queen’s Nurse exam papers from 100 years ago.

Anne Pearson, the QNI’s director of programmes, said the calendar showed the “evolution of community nursing over the past 100 years”.

The calendar is available from the QNI’s online shop at a cost of £5.
