Your School / Re: GOSH - Great Ormond St Hospital for Sick Children
« Last post by pam157 on July 21, 2020, 09:02:05 PM »
I started my training in January 1957 along with 27 trembling new students. We spent 3 months in PTS at Rutland House with our two nurse tutors - Sister Garner and Sister Reid (I think if my memory serves me correctly)  First time I had been to London except for my interview when the leader of the local St John Ambulance, of which I was a member, held my hand. I still keep in touch with three of the set - one lives in Australia, two in England and me in Crete. They were good days but hard work!

Not having much luck on this one so far! I am sure that somewhere in this lot will lay the answer but not easily accessible:
Will keep looking but in cases like this recent history is harder to track down than the older stuff.

I actually lived in the nirses home called Rutland House Bedford Place. I lived there in 1983 around the summer/ autumn time.
I was coming towards the end of my two year enrolled nurse training. Origianlly started at Tadworth, then upto Queen Elisabeths in Hackney Road and then GOS. I hated it at Rutland House. The room was huge but I was separated from the rest of my set who were in the main nurses home at GOS. Eventually I moved there when a room became available. This why I wasnted tk join  this forum as I came across the post about wanting to find out if anyone had ever lived there.

Well, the final date advertised for our June 2020 News page (June 30th) came and left without me - yesterday!!

But we managed it today (1st July) and here are with our fifty-second SoN News Page.

For all the work, there doesn't seem much to put on-line (there is of course plenty already there) with the gallery pages continuing and articles being prepared. 'Collectors Corner' also reports no new additions, but there is a fair amount there to perhaps reacquaint with past events.

A couple of new South-African badges are certainly worth a look - promise.

This month has again been particularly difficult. Covid 19 certainly has not helped, and the loss of a close friend was not good news by anyone's measure. 

On the bright side - and yes, there is one - We were locked down on Crete before we were due to return earlier in the year (Greece locked down almost before anyone else) and decided to remain until we deemed it safe to return to the UK.  The weather is superbly hot. HOT! We are looking forward to returning - hopefully soon. Our first flights from the UK to Chania are not for another week or so, so we are watching carefully our UK situation.

Enjoy the  read...

Hi Eric,

There is an excellent article here:-

It outlines all that is needed on the eleven COVID-19 hospitals opened to cope with the current Pandemic. Scotland; Wales; and Norther Ireland are also included, plus a Field Hospital in Gibraltar.

Well worth a look.

Someone should point the RCN to the search facility on here to identify some of their unidentified badges!

But is this what Lycett Green really wanted?

Or has the past finally caught up with the present?

I started my training at the Norfolk and Norwich in June 1974 - 1978. I finally qualified as an Enrolled nurse (I failed my SRN finals). The PNO was Miss Steele and we were based at the old hospital site, St  Stephens in the city but also rotated to the West Norwich and The Jenny Lind hospitals.
My father was Brian Hume one of the SEN tutors and my two younger brothers are both SRNs.
