Seminar series: 70 years of NHS

July 2018 saw a range of celebrations for the 70th birthday of the NHS. Whilst we celebrated in the School of Nursing and Midwifery in July, we also began to plan a new Seminar Series.

The seminar series, to be hosted at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Keele University is designed to provide an opportunity for seminars from a range of distinguished speakers to really celebrate the achievements of the NHS and nursing and midwifery and specifically the contribution of nursing and midwifery during this time. Seminars are planned three times annually and the first welcomes Tommy Whitelaw to the School as he reflects on the care he provided for his Mum, Joan.

Speaker: Tommy Whitelaw

Tommy Whitelaw was a full-time carer for his mother who had vascular dementia; Tommy now campaigns on the issues surrounding dementia.

Alongside Tommy's talk, a book entitled 'Collected stories: being cared for at home' will be launched. This is a joint project between the School of Nursing and Midwifery and Midlands Partnership Foundation Trust.
The book contains a collection of stories about care delivered at home and will be available for purchase on the night.
