Alison O’Donnell will explore the history of the Scottish Women’s Hospitals, in this free history of nursing talk. Founded by Dr Elsie Inglis, these remarkable units were staffed entirely by women, from nurses and surgeons to cooks and engineers.
The event will also include a chance to explore some of the First World War material from the RCN archives in an informal show and tell with archivist Fiona Bourne.
This free event at the Royal College of Nursing Archives - RCN Scotland, 42 South Oswald Road, Edinburgh, EH9 2HH - and is co-ordinated by the RCN History of Nursing Society (www.rcn.org.uk/hons)
