Can you help?

There are exciting plans to put on an exhibition of nurses’ uniforms later in the year. The organisers are keen to track down Middlesex nurses who have stories about their uniforms and what they meant to them. Do you have an old uniform? Do you have your cape? Do you have your belt buckle?

This has the potential to be a real celebration of nursing I do hope you may be able to contribute and make it a great success.

Please get in touch with Angela Wedgwood: awislington@gmail.com if you have a uniform you could lend for the exhibition or any anecdotes.
