The first three interview extracts from the oral history interviews about nursing and nurse’s lives are now available at:  www.talesofthings.com/totem/group_view/55/

 A major element of the ‘Unsung Heroes’ project  has been the interviews undertaken with current and retired nursing staff.

Volunteers and research students have had the privilege to interview over 30 current and retired nurses whose memories have been recorded and transcribed.

Once the project has been completed, the recordings and transcriptions will be available through the Lothian Health Services Archive http://www.lhsa.lib.ed.ac.uk for researchers to access.

The interviews have also informed the new work to be displayed with the historic hospital and nursing badges in a permanent installation at the Royal Infirmary Edinburgh.

More extracts from the interviews will be on the Tales of Things website shortly.
