Sarah Elizabeth Curr
Sarah was my buddy when I worked as a King’s link lecturer for Chelsea and Westminster hospital. She supported me in my new role and taught me everything I know about teaching undergraduate nurses. Soon we realise how many things we had in common and how comfortable we felt in each other’s company. We became best of friends socialising out of work and sharing life experiences. We were teachers, travellers, unconventional women, funny and life-loving. I remember we started teaching venepuncture to nursing students and designed the sessions that still are taught today. I remember her sending me pictures from Somaliland wrapped in a head scarf, beautiful and daring!
When I lacked teaching confidence, she would always say: ‘don’t be worried, we know much more than them!’ and we laughed at her remark. This is what I am keeping from Sarah, her contagious laughter and her lack of fear. My darling Sarah, I really miss you….
