Retired Caribbean Nurses & the NHS
Caribbean Nurses & the NHS is an exhibition and oral history project that chronicles the experiences of retired nurses. These are individuals who were recruited from the Caribbean to the UK from 1949 onwards.

They were trained as nurses in the United Kingdom between then and 1970. They have lived trained and or worked in the East London Boroughs of Hackney and Newham.

This important Oral History Project will benefit our society by bringing diverse communities together, to help create a store of resources about the experiences of Caribbean nurses for future historical and educational purposes.
Retired Caribbean Nurses & the NHS
Laying Foundations for Generations

Are you a retired nurse, from the Caribbean, and would like to participate? We would love to hear from you.
We want to: listen to you, record your experiences of leaving home, travelling to the UK, settling here and of being a nurse.

If you choose to only take part in interviews, we will interview you at least once
for 1or 2 hours (at an agreed venue). If you want to do more, there will be opportunities to meet with other nurses from around the country, participate in the Schools Project, giving you the chance to work with a range of people

Sounds as if it is something you want to be a part of?
Help us preserve this part of the African-Caribbean experience
