Yvonne has worked in the National Health Service (NHS) since 1993 but her journey in child protection really began in 2003 after becoming the Named Nurse Operational Lead for Safeguarding Children, in London. Now as Designated Nurse Strategic Lead for Safeguarding Children, Yvonne is responsible for ensuring that health providers in her catchment area make informed decisions on safeguarding children and child protection.
