Episode 154: A change of scenery
Matron: So what's brought on this request for a transfer
Alice: Oh nothing in particular, Matron.
Matron: You've been doing so well with the new borns. You
really seem to have the knack with them. And we get
great feedback about you from the parents too.
Alice: I do enjoy that part of my job – you know, helping
the mums and dads.
Matron: So if you're not unhappy, why do you want to get
away from us all of a sudden?
Alice: I just think I'd like to get more experience of
different types of nursing.
Matron: Aren't you forgetting how varied the work is here on
the children's ward? I'm sorry but we're incredibly
short-staffed at the moment as you know. So I think
I'll have to turn down your request for now.
