The irrepressible June was on TV this week. The residents of Orchid Care Home were shown on the local news celebrating Nurses Week 2021 by serving lunch to the staff. June was herself a nurse, a long time ago, and was interviewed next to a picture of herself as a young woman in a nurses uniform. She worked in hospitals in the days when Matron ruled the ward with an iron hand and has lots of stories to tell. The picture on the right is not actually June— it just shows what nurses looked like back then! It was lovely to see her looking so well.

And while we are celebrating nurses from the past, let’s also celebrate the modern version. Daisy has almost finished her training in Oxford and is looking forward to starting her first job soon in John Radcliffe. Well done!
