Dr Eleanor Nash took up a position as a physician at Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town, in the 1970s. However, her interests changed in midcareer and she trained as a psychiatrist at the University of Cape Town, later becoming a senior and valuable member of the Department of Psychiatry. She made a significant contribution in helping to plan and organise psychiatric and educational programmes, was always available to help and gave wholeheartedly with advice and clinical expertise. For instance, she flew to the flood devastated Laingsberg in 1983 where she dealt with the psychological effects on survivors and those who had been devastated by the tragedy.
