Yvonne Middlewick is a lecturer within Health Sciences at the University of Southampton. She is the BN(Hons) Programme Lead for the undergraduate nursing programmes.

Yvonne registered as a general nurse (RGN) in 1991 and started her career working in gynaecology & breast surgery. In this role she was often working with people who were experiencing distress both physically and psychologically.

This resulted in Yvonne starting work within mental health nursing and completing her registration as a mental health nurse (RMN) in 1995. As a dual registered nurse she worked with older adults in both mental health and acute hospital settings for around 10 years. The complexity of working with this group of service users and their families highlighted the importance of interprofessional working and led to her taking on the role of Interprofessional Learning Coordinator for Portsmouth and South East Hampshire.

The aim of this leading edge project implementation role was to embed interprofessional education in clinical and academic practice. After three years of project and change management experience with health and social care professionals in a wide range of organisations Yvonne joined the University of Southampton as a lecturer in 2006.

She now leads a team of staff in the delivery of the undergraduate nursing programme and is studying part time for a PhD exploring the lived experiences of the transition to menopause. Along with studying and working she has worked as a volunteer researcher for an FGM charity 28 Too Many and contributed to the profiling of FGM and its impact in Senegal.
