Heather Carson’s work as a Matron’s secretary

Heather CarsonHeather’s first job was at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. It was just after the war and she was 15 years old. She had to interview the patients. The Matron told her to talk to the mother if they needed more details than the child could tell her. One day she spotted her Father’s nephew and was able to take him home when he was well enough. Later in life she worked at St Dunstan’s as an Office Secretary.
