Why did you become a nurse?
When I was no older than six or seven, we used to go to Margate on holiday. Walking down to the beach every morning, I was fascinated by the sight of patients being pushed on to the open air balconies in their hospital beds by nurses dressed in crisp white aprons and starched caps. I never forgot that sight. I wanted to wear one of those uniforms. I wanted to help, so I suppose I knew that one day I would become a nurse.
