Organisations responsible for establishing the first district nursing service in Scotland have come together to mark the Queen’s Jubilee.

The event, which involved community nurse practitioners from across the country, also celebrated 150 years of public health nursing. Queen Margaret University and the Queen’s Nursing Institute Scotland organised the event.

Ishbel Rutherford, nursing lead at QMU, said: “The university’s founders were responsible for setting up the first district nursing service.”
