LoveReading View on Health Heroes

An inspiring celebration of health workers from all around the world

The People Who Took Care of the World

Every one of us has visited a doctor or nurse, or taken a trip to hospital at some point in our lives, but it took Coronavirus to make us really notice the men and women who look after us when we need it, and to recognise them as heroes. This inspiring and informative book begins with introductions to the very first doctors, nurses and surgeons (starting with Hippocrates), then comes totally up to date. Real, live ‘health heroes’ working in a range of different locations and roles tell us about their working lives, what they do and why they love it. It’s stirring stuff, many of the anecdotes and stories they share are really moving and all are fascinating. This is an excellent book for anyone interested in a career in medicine or care, but a great read too for all who’ve watched, wondered at and applauded the people who have done so much for us during these difficult times.
