Welldoing – my journey
My nursing career started at University College Hospital (UCH), London in 1980. After qualifying I staffed on a male medical ward within the old cruciform building off Tottenham Court Road wearing the traditional uniform with a starched apron and hat! I undertook my midwifery training at The John Radcliffe, part of Oxford University with approx six thousand births a year. As a qualified midwife I worked at another large, busy delivery suite in Watford General Hospital. I transitioned into Health Visiting, a community education role, then with three young children I chose to work part-time in general practice managing Medical Research Council (MRC) studies within a practice nurse role

Reviewed by a purchaser – “Rachel James’ heartfelt introduction to the world of spinal injury caring for her daughter, then aged just 22. Honest, forthright, Rachel’s journey is harrowing, and tragic yet she blends it with grace and humour. With many helpful tips, this book is a great resource for those wanting to understand more about the devastation caused by an injury of this type, (or other unexpected trauma) and the hypocrisy of how society still deals with aspects of disability.”
