Wow, the summer has certainly arrived, for some greatly received, for others it's a time of finding shade trying to keep cool. Please remember to stay hydrated, take regular breaks and keep safe.

Friday 16 June was another hot sunny day where hundreds of us came together to celebrate London GPNs in the spectacular Regents Park University grounds, in the middle of Regent's Park.

All five London Lead Training Hubs working together, with NHSE collaborating on another exceptional event. Teamwork at its best.

The legendary Kenny Gibson, Deputy Director for NHS Safeguarding was MC for the day, and he didn't disappoint. His energy, singing, and ability to encourage 300+ GPNs and speakers to dance together in the aisle was superb.

We had many fabulous speakers attend. Dame Elizabeth Anionwu was inspiring, as ever and Dr Crystal Oldman, CE QNI, talked about the history and current relevance of the QNI to GPNs today. Whilst Monique Audiferren outlined the NHS National GPN Programme priorities to support recruitment, retention and development of the GPN workforce.
