Who’d have thought a missing bacon rasher and a teaspoon would play a part in advancing someone’s career? It’s the late ’60s and Jane Yeadon has always wanted to be a district nurse. Staff nursing in a ward where she’s challenged by an inventory driven ward sister, she reckons it’s time to swap such trivialities for life as a district nurse.
Independent thinking is one thing, but Jane’s about to find that the drama on district can demand instant reaction; and without hospital back up, she’s usually the one having to provide it. She meets a rich cast of patients all determined to follow their own individual star, and goes to Edinburgh where Queen Victoria’s Jubilee Institute’s nurse training is considered the cr me de la cr me of the district nursing world.
Call Me Sister recalls Jane’s challenging and often hilarious route to realizing her own particular dream.
