A collection of stories by the nurses and their colleagues at the Royal Flying Doctor Service in Western Australia. Compiled by Gaye Richardson in conjunction with the Flight Nurse Reunion Committee.
John Flynn founded the famous Royal Flying Doctor Service to spread “a mantle of safety” over the remote communities of the Australian inland. Essential to that continuing task is the flight nurses who accompany every flight. Along with the doctors and pilots with whom they fly, they have had to deal with many tough and challenging situations.
They may have been asked to confront mayhem, but there is nevertheless a great deal of mirth in this book – and a lot of magic. In Nurses with Altitude, those who flew out across the vast state of Western Australia tell their stories in their own words. (publishers blurb)
