thin on top no teeth but a happy nurse.

  1. Hi,
    My name is John I am currently registered with the Nursing and Midwives Council in the United Kingdom. Though in fact I have recently retired from full time nursing.

    Although I am general Nurse and also psychiatric trained, I have worked in numerous specialities. These include, Major Injuies unit, Orthopaedics, and Burns. I have also been employed in a large Industrial ( engineering ) complex for a number of years. The company had on site 9,000 employees. and the nearest hospital being twenty miles away meant that we the nurses were the front line life savers, in more than one way.

    I have had the enjoyment of working in a large holiday company as a leisure nurse. 6.000 visitors a week stayed on the site, we had 23 deaths in 34 weeks, and people actually came to the complex knowing they may die, but with the knowledge that previous visits had always had happy outcomes.

    Though not nursing I also served as a very early para medic in London.
    I am now involved with Health and Safety, client movement and handling, food hygiene and first aid work, all of which I lecture on as an adult trained teacher.

    I previously flew with an air ambulance in support of iraq in the 85 iraq/iran war. Sadam nearly had me shot, orrible little man.

    well there it is, me and some of my life, leaving out fifteen years in the Royal Air Force.
