Abstract

Alan Simpson left school with a few O levels to work in a tannery. Inspired by the book One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, he went into mental health nursing and, as Thelma Agnew discovers, he has not looked back. He was one of the few nurses with a degree in the 1980s and worked as a staff nurse before landing a job as a research nurse in addictive behaviours. He went on to gain a research fellowship and is now a teaching fellow and lecturer
