Cancer Lead Nurse

Supporting Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Foundation Trust as a cancer centre

Spring 2009

£51,410 to allow the appointment of a Cancer Lead Nurse at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Foundation Trust.
Currently the hospital has a number of work areas that relate to cancer services and the long term future of the Trust as a cancer centre.  These include ensuring that the Trust is meeting governmental requirements on cancer reform and implementing recommendations of the National Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy Advisory Groups.  The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) is in the process of publishing a series of guidance manuals for cancer services and the Trust also needs to show that it is complying with these.
The appointed Cancer Lead Nurse would undertake some of the work that needs to be clinically driven and free the Trust’s Cancer Operational Manager to carry out the more strategic planning.
