Alex's Bio

Alex joined the ODN in January 2021 as the Lead Nurse for Paediatric Critical Care. She started her career as a nurse in a neonatal unit but quickly realised her passion was caring for the critically ill child rather than neonate. Over the course of her career she has focused on Paediatric Critical Care (HDU/ICU), Paediatric Site Management and Outreach. She has set up and grown a Paediatric Critical Care Outreach service within Oxford and most recently has worked as the Matron in Paediatric Critical Care. She is looking forward to working across a network that she has worked within for many years. She loves to get out hiking in the mountains and running with her 2 dogs whenever she can.
