About the Author
Rose MacFarlane trained as a nurse at the prestigious Sheffield Royal Hospital in the North of England between 1963 and 1966. She was top of her year in the finals. Her Irish father was a GP and both her sisters trained as nurses. Her maiden aunt, Agnes was the youngest Matron in Britain at the age of 29 before WWII.
She was a United Nations Association (UNA) volunteer in a hospital in Jordan for a year from 1967 just after the Six-Day War. Here she was made 'Matron' at the age of 22 and addressed as Sitt Malaki "Miss Queen," by her staff, a responsibility which prompts her remark in her first book Naked Nurse: My Life in Nursing "Gawd, help us!"
She gained experience in private and NHS nursing in hospitals and residential care homes in London and Kent along with family planning and child-minding until 1985. She was obliged to retire from nursing at the age of 40 after sustaining a back injury in the workplace, a classic work-injured nurse except her injury was caused by having to lift a corpse off a trolley in an emergency.
Unable to work, Rose fell on hard times but founded a national UK charity for people in pain, answering her own night Help Line for almost twenty years. She won several awards for her work and many accolades. Her next book scheduled for early 2015 will be on the subject of pain management.
