Speaker: Paul Whittle
Born in 1820 Florence Nightingale lived to the age of 90 and achieved far more than she is generally known for during the Crimean War. She was instrumental in making nursing in Britain a respectable and skilled profession whilst her initiatives in health care and hospital design are still relevant today.
Paul's talk covers her life and achievements, and the places with which she is associated. Finally a look at the Crimea today.
