Pixie Annat: Champion of Nurses by Colleen Ryan Clur

The inspiring story of a Queensland woman who fought for recognition of nurses throughout her long and distinguished nursing career, and later campaigned on behalf of homeless women and the elderly. Isobel Mary (Pixie) Annat grew up in rural Queensland and trained to be a nurse shortly after World War II. Working first at the Royal Brisbane Hospital, she went on to forge an extraordinary career as matron, then CEO, of St Andrew's War Memorial Hospital in Brisbane. Pixie Annat: Champion of Nurses draws on anecdotes from Pixie's personal journey and documents the important contributions made by medical colleagues during her more than 50-year career working in healthcare. It also recounts her years as a leader of the Royal Australian Nursing Federation. Pixie later applied her skills to many charitable board positions, giving generously of her time and wisdom. The energy, humour and zest she displayed throughout her life makes for an uplifting read.
