The damaging effect of staff shortages and poor standards of care on our growing number of elderly patients are as much of a scandal today as they were when charge nurse Graham Pink struggled to cope on every night shift.

This book is his account of what happened as he tried uphold the nurses’ Code of Conduct and make a stand on behalf of his vulnerable patients. A Time to Speak is not a work of fiction; it is real, it is disturbing. It happened.

What Graham Pink witnessed it still happening today, and all of us at some point have turned a blind eye. Read this story and be grateful for the discomfort it gives, because we all need to get better.
- Professor June Andrews, the Dementia Centre, University of Stirling.

Graham Pink really does represent so much of what a responsible society needs in its midst. His determination and persistence helped to create the momentum for the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 and we should all salute his resolve and courage"
- Tom Sandford, Director, RCN England

Nurses Voices From the Northern Ireland Troubles
Over the course of 30 years, more than 3,600 people were killed and tens of thousands injured during The Troubles in Northern Ireland. For the healthcare professionals who cared for the victims, the worst of times brought out the best in people. Nurses rose to the challenge of caring for their patients, from whichever ‘side’ they came, under testing conditions. Throughout it all, these nurses showed incredible reserves of patience, determination, fortitude and courage.

Fully illustrated in colour, this unique hardback brings together a selection of personal accounts from some of those exceptional nurses.
