Celebrating overseas nurses, Radicalised children
This edition looks at losing a son to Syria, celebrating overseas nurses and the NHS, and the challenges of modern masculinity. Presented by Jenni Murray.
Geraldine last saw her 18 year old son in February 2014. A year later she received a text to tell her he was dead. Despite her attempts to stop him, the young Muslim man from Molenbeek in Brussels had gone to Syria. Geraldine speaks to Jenni about coming to terms with losing a son and her work to raise awareness with other parents, and in schools, about radicalisation.
All this week we are highlighting the centenary of the Royal College of Nursing, looking at the role of nurses within the NHS and how it's changed. Today we want to celebrate the role played by nurses from overseas. We hear from Gwen Gutzmore, who came over from the Caribbean in the 1960's to train in the UK, clinical stroke specialist, Ismalia De Sousa, who joined the health service in 2009, and former nurse and Professor of Nursing Policy at Kings College, Anne Marie Rafferty.
Rebecca Asher and Jack Urwin have both written books called 'Man Up' about modern masculinity. They explain why they believe fundamental change would benefit everyone.
