Helen Lambourne, Oxfordshire Family Nurse Partnership Supervisor, has been given the prestigious title of Queen’s Nurse by community nursing charity, The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI).

The title recognises a commitment to high standards of patient care, learning and leadership.

Helen will be able to take an active role across all nursing teams in the trust, sharing her learning with others.

Crystal Oldman, Chief Executive of the QNI said: “Congratulations are due to Helen for her success. Community Nurses operate in an ever more challenging world and our role is to support them as effectively as we can”.

Having attended the award ceremony in London, Helen said: “The ceremony was an uplifting and inspirational experience and I would encourage all nurses with more than three years community experience to consider applying to be a Queen’s Nurse.”
