Dr Crystal Oldman started her NHS career in 1975 as a ward orderly, and after qualifying as a nurse at University College Hospital, she worked in some of the most deprived communities in London.

Crystal also spent 18 years in higher education where her role as dean included the development of evidence-based practice within integrated community nursing, primary and social care workforce.

She is the governing body nurse of the Buckinghamshire clinical commissioning group and has an interest in quality and transforming primary and community services to meet the national agenda of care being delivered closer to home.

Crystal chaired the NHS Improvement working group on safe caseloads in the district nursing service as part of the wider NHSI programme on safe, sustainable staffing.

Her work at the QNI involves influencing policy in the pursuit of the best care for people in the community and primary care, supported by evidence and intelligence from stakeholders, the development of role models such as Queen’s nurses, the support of innovation to enhance best practice and the development of educational standards.

She was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 2017.
