Queen's Nurse Regional Meetings

The Queen's Nurse Network currently consists of 15 regional groups. The meetings are an opportunity for you to share and discuss professional issues and concerns with like-minded professional colleagues. 

If you are a QN, we will link you to your nearest group. 

Each regional group has been allocated a regional lead; QNs are usually provided with details of their regional lead as well as other Queen's Nurses in their region. 

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the Queen's Nurse Network Facilitator Farida Barlas at

Some QN regional groups keep in touch by Twitter or on Facebook - please note these are unofficial and not monitored by the QNI.
