Julie Platten (she/her)

Co- Chair of Critical Care National Network Nurse Lead Forum (CC3N) & North of England Critical Care Network Manager and Lead Nurse
Critical Care National Network Nurse Lead Forum (CC3N) North of England Critical Care Network

Julie qualified as an RN in Durham and then went on to work in the private sector for 13 years. During these years she developed an interest in the more acute aspect of nursing practice leading her to further her training in High Dependency Care. This prompted a move back into the public sector to further her knowledge and experience. Her career developed and led her to work in Critical Care where she moved through the ranks from a Band 5 to a Band 7 Education Facilitator. This is where she found her niche and developed a passion for developing and supporting others, recognising that if we don't look after our staff, we won't have anyone to look after the patients.

Her career led her to work in the Critical Care Network in the North of England first as a secondment but moving into a substantive role where she has been for the last 10 years. Within this role she has taken the lead on number of local and national service improvement projects such as the development and facilitation of the National Competency Framework for Registered Nurses working in Critical Care and continue in the development a support of others.

More recently she was appointed to Chair of the Critical Care National Network Nurse Leads Forum (CC3N) which coincided with the onset of the COVID19 global pandemic, a very challenging time for Critical Care. Having a seat at the table in the development of national policy over this time gave her the opportunity to ensure the nurses voice was heard, enabling her to influence developments for the future of the service ensuring a safe care for the patients and supportive structures for the nurses. Collaborating with other organisations, HEE on Critical Care education standardising both credits attained and also cost while changing to a blended delivery making it more accessible to the staff.  Also, NHSE on the rollout of Professional Nurse Advocates (PNA’s) with Critical Care chosen as the first area to introduce this roll into the establishment. 

To have been given this opportunity she feels very privileged and would like to thank all the critical care nurses for their support and dedication.

What our clients say about us

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!


In view of the recent NHS Oncology Conference organised by CONVENZIS which was sponsored by Pascoe Healthcare Ltd, CONVENZIS exhibited professionalism through credible organisation, invitation of delegates/respectable Speakers and general conduct of the entire conference. This has also shown that CONVENZIS is a great partner in business which is fundamental to ROI of partnering Companies even in the wake of the pandemic.

Not only is the content always extremely topical, but the speakers are always excellent and the support from the team ahead of and during the events is exceptional. The team are incredibly receptive to feedback and always goes above and beyond – a real pleasure to work with!”


“It has been a pleasure to work with Matt and Dan for the past few events. Everything has always run smoothly and we’ve always managed to gather a large number of interested parties due to the events they have hosted.

They are also very helpful and timely in their responses, which has made working with them very easy “
