Goodbye matron, eradicating TB, and the first ‘iron lung’


20 | NHS70 | SUMMER 2018


Among the many changes in nursing since 1948, the departure of matrons from our hospitals is one which was pioneered in Glasgow. In the 1960s Miss Anne Court- Brown, Matron of the Royal Infirmary, in- troduced the first pilot scheme under which grades, related to actual duties carried out,


replaced the old hierarchy with matron at the top. As health care has become ever more


scientific and technical, the work of nurses has changed enormously. So, nurse train- ing based on ‘hands-on’ experience in the hospitals has gradually been replaced by theoretical nurse education based in uni- versities. An important early experiment in nurse education was carried out in Glasgow.
