From Dunfermline to London: Memoirs of a Staff Nurse 1950-1963
by Jeanie Traynor Maltby

Jeanie Traynor Maltby (née) Shaw acquired a reputation as a storyteller amongst her nursing friends and latterly with her six grandchildren. She regaled with colourful stories of her training and life as a nurse in Scotland and then London. She was encouraged to record her memoirs for a wider audience.

Reflecting Jeanie's excellent memory for details, a sharp wit and a profound commitment to nursing, these stories hold both humour and poignancy - they are both entertaining and informative - providing a personal perspective on the beginnings of the NHS. From a fever ward in Dunfermline to a general hospital in Edinburgh, and from midwifery in Lewisham to residences of the rich and famous in London - these stories are both captivating and entertaining. The one thing they have in common is Jeanie's care and compassion for each patient: whatever their background and however young or old.

As Jeanie says "I nursed everyone as if they were a member of my own family."
