dc.descriptionBiographical interview with Lynne McNeish (b. c.1954) who was born and brought up in Lochmaben. This interview is mainly about Lynne's working life as a nurse. She describes her training, which began in Ayrshire and then continued at the south-west college of nursing after she transferred due to homesickness. During her long career, Lynne spent time at the old Infirmary in Dumfries, Lochmaben Hospital, Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock and the Gates Rubber factory. Aspects of nursing discussed here include: training and uniforms; different posts Lynne has held over her career; working in the Accident and Emergency wards; changes in nurse training and the pressures on staffing levels. Lynne also talks about the changes in Lochmaben hospital over the years and in the town itself. Although much busier now, Lynne felt Lochmaben was still a friendly community although she was sorry that the High Street had so few shops.
