Four decades after they first began training together at Burnley General Hospital a group of nurses have enjoyed a reunion

Many from the original group are still working in the local hospitals and primary care settings and they would love to get in touch with the rest for future reunions that are already being planned.

If you were one of the nurses who started training with this group you can contact them by emailing [email protected]
