Stand up comedy at RCN Congress

  • Comment

Kicking off with a song about her teenage love life, Ms McCreadie went on to talk about such taboo subjects as fat nurses and the perils of moving and handling bariatric patients.

Organised by the RCN’s Lothian branch, the evening had a decidedly Celtic feel and as such was not complete without some references to the Scottish obsession with ‘fitba’.

‘Wouldn’t it be great if wards were like football matches, with all the patients shouting “who’s the w***er in the white?’ and “you don’t know what you’re doing”” said Ms McCreadie.

I am not so sure nurses would really like this, but it certainly brought the house down at the Old Swan.
