    DescriptionFor 150 years, district nurses have been taking care of the sick in their own homes, providing health care, moral support, and wise advice to people of all ages and classes, in rural areas, towns and cities the length and breadth of the country. Begun in 1860s Liverpool by philanthropist William Rathbone, the District Nursing Movement was founded to care for the poor who had no access to medical care. This illuminating book shows how the role of the district nurse has moved on greatly since Queen Victoria's Jubilee, expanding and developing to provide a broad range of invaluable health care services in the community.
