Event description

Description

Nurses have worked in the Royal Air Force since 1918, developing unique skills caring for the in-flight sick and wounded. George Cuthbert, the custodian of the Princess Mary’s Royal Air Force Nursing Service archive, explains the fascinating story of these so-called ‘Flying Nightingales’. Flt Lt Paul Evans will contrast this history with his own experiences today. He has extensive aeromedical experience, and was involved in the transfer of Ebola patient Pauline Cafferkey to the UK.
