Public lecture: the shock of the fall and the last asylum

For our inaugural public lecture, the RCN is pleased to invite two recently published authors in the field of mental health.


For our inaugural public lecture, the RCN is pleased to invite two recently published authors in the field of mental health.

Author Nathan Filer won the 2013 Costa Book Prize for his novel, The Shock of the Fall. A practising mental health nurse, Nathan will speak about two sides of his life – writing and nursing – and how the two have recently come together.

Professor Barbara Gold Taylor will offer a patient’s perspective, speaking from her 2014 memoir, The Last Asylum. Barbara Taylor is a historian at Queen Mary University of London, and was formerly a patient at Friern Hospital in London during its final years. She combines her own story with an account of the rise and demise of the British asylum system.

This event is free, but booking is essential. Please use the online booking form or contact RCN Event Registrations on 029 2054 6460 or eventsreg@rcn.org.uk to book your place.
