This book compiles, for the first time, a record of the impact of Irish Nurses on the British Health Service. The phenomenon is traced back to the Florence Nightingale era through to the early years of the Millennium. Social demographics in Ireland, and limited career opportunities, gave impetus for young Irish women and men to enter nursing by seeking training and work in Britain. Ireland's Loss, Britain's Gain explains the reasons and resulting gain for Britain, particularly the nurses' contribution to the National Health Service across the spectrum. The narrative is supported by Irish nurses' personal recollections and the author's wide research.
