Introducing our Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialist Team
As part of our patient-centric approach we will drive a better patient experience, support better access to care and improve a patient’s overall quality of life whilst on cancer treatment.
The goal of our CNS teams is to support the clinical, emotional and psychological well-being of patients and families with life limiting diseases and improve patient outcomes.
*Patients should contact their clinician for more information
