New cancer nurse role at Surrey and Sussex Healthcare

  • Comment

A charity has agreed to fund a new cancer nurse post at Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.

The trust has announced that it is to receive funding from Macmillan Cancer Support for a clinical nurse specialist in malignant haematology.

In his weekly statement, dated 23 September, trust chief executive Michael Wilson said: “We currently have 23 members of staff that are either Macmillan badged or adopted – including the lead cancer nurse and many site specific clinical nurse specialists and chemotherapy nurses – all with the aim of improving the care and pathways for people with cancer.

“In the last three years Macmillan have funded roles in head and neck cancer, gynaecological and urological cancers and we are currently working with them on building a Cancer Information Centre at East Surrey Hospital.

“I’m delighted to announce that Macmillan have agreed to initially fund a new permanent role for a clinical nurse specialist in malignant haematology.”
