Notes

First edition, first impression, the Gollancz archive copy with their ink-stamp to the title-page; uncommon in the dust jacket. After 1945 "Britain had to face the fact that the difficulty of recruiting and retaining a capable nursing staff seriously hampered post-war hospital expansion and implementation of the National Health Service. Despite repeated documentation of serious flaws in basic nurse training, political commitment and resources to drastically reform nursing education were lacking. Already before the war, Gladys B. Carter, a British nurse and economist, published 'A New Deal for Nurses', advocating the reform of British nursing education Carter became a key leader in the establishment of Britain's first academic nursing unit, the Nurse Teaching Unit, eventually renamed Department of Nursing Studies, at the University of Edinburgh in 1956" (Boschma, Faculty of Nursing on the Move, p. 88).
