I am Lesley Haxworth. I have been a Registered Nurse for over 30 years. I am a RCN Accredited Advanced Nurse Practitioner and qualified District Nurse. More Recently I have completed the Post Graduate Certificate in Education and I am a non -medical prescriber. My back ground is predominantly Primary Care in Oxfordshire, however I did spend 7 years in West Africa running the FCO medical Centre in Lagos looking after the UK Diplomatic community posted there. My passion in nursing is now focused on education, support and training, working hard on building a voice for nursing within Primary Care Networks and General Practice. I am currently the Training and Career Development Lead for Oxfordshire Training Hub and the GPN Clinical Lead for the New to General Practice Fellowship programme across BOB.
