It's not all blood and guts (Online Event)

Royal College of Nursing Library and Heritage Centre

19/11/2020 17:30 - 18:30

Coping with a ‘dead body’ coming back to life… Climbing down a slippery embankment to care for a lorry driver trapped in his cab... Telling a wife her husband had just died. Gary Jones has faced many challenges in his 40 years of A&E nursing. For International Men's Day, we invite him to talk from his recent memoir, It’s Not All Blood And Guts, available from all good booksellers. From his early days as a hospital cadet, through to running his own consultancy, expert witness and training company, we will hear some fascinating, sometimes shocking, patient stories. We will travel with Gary as he heads for Canada and the USA, returning with ideas that not only transformed the care at his own hospital but also influenced A&E nursing and paramedic development across the UK. We will also hear what it was like starting out in a predominantly female profession in the 1970s. Please register to attend and a link will be circulated in advance with instructions on how to join the event. All tickets must be booked individually.
