Did the upbringing of Agnes Hunt have any impact on her later career?
1. Early Days
Her mother, a determined woman, did not allow Agnes to feel self pity. She was encouraged to do everything her able bodied siblings did. This combination of her strict upbringing and a hard nurse's training was to prove a great asset. It provided her with determination and tenacity, a good background for her pioneering work in setting up the first open air orthopaedic hospital.
