Default Exclusive: Community nurses in Dorset trying out ‘e-bikes’

A team of community nurses in Dorset is using electric bikes to visit
their patients as part of an initiative to improve staff wellbeing,
patient engagement and the environment, one of the nurses leading the
project has revealed to Nursing Times.

Hattie Taylor, from Dorset Healthcare University NHS Foundation Trust,
explained how riding an e-bike to patient’s homes has made the team more
“visible in the community” and has helped to change the public’s
perception of what community nursing is really like.

I knew a district nurse and she travelled around a hundred miles a day
when working, her car was not only her equipment carrier but also her
office, and her restroom/lunchroom, so an ebike would be pretty useless
in a real world situation, not to mention getting cold and wet and the
chance of serious injury.

But if you want to steal an ebike just follow a nurse in Dorset.

There used to be a district nurse living in the street where I was
brought up. She had a distinctive uniform (think "Miss Marple") and got
around on a bike to perform her duties (whatever they were).

Then, around 1958, she got a brand-new Austin A35 (or was it an A30?
They were very much the same).

I wonder whether she would have gone back to the bike?
