The Queen’s Nursing Institute welcomes all Queen’s Nurses to join us for a day of stimulating discussion and insightful speakers on 25th March 9.30am – 4pm.

Dr Crystal Oldman and Professor John Unsworth will present an update about the latest developments from the QNI, and we will hear from a range of speakers in healthcare leadership and practice. Nurses who have undertaken the QNI’s community nursing innovation programme will also share their experiences of using gardens as a way of improving health outcomes in their communities. We look forward to welcoming you and please bring your ideas, enthusiasm and inspiration with you.

The full event programme will be provided in advance, but we will hear from key speakers about the latest developments in healthcare policy and practice.


Speakers include (in order of appearance):

  • Allyson Kent QN in conversation with Libby Pearson, Playwright;
  • Lisa Gavin, Clinical Service Manager, Gypsy, Roma Traveller & Inclusion Health;
  • Julie Roye RN RM QN, RCN Nurse of the Year 2023;

  • George Plumptre, Chief Executive of the National Garden Scheme

A full programme will be available shortly.

Please note: The Queen’s Nursing Institute is a registered charity and as such it has no official views on party political matters. It does have views on health and social care policies that affect nursing and community healthcare. We regularly invite speakers with a political or public service background where relevant to our areas of interest. We intend to invite the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to a QNI event following the next general election.
