I have worked in Cancer Care for the majority of my career, working as both a Clinical Nurse Specialist and a chemotherapy nurse specialist. I have a degree in Cancer and Palliative care. I have worked in both Primary and Secondary care settings. My role in management developed from an interest in a desire to help develop services for cancer not only for people being referred for a suspicion of cancer but also the staff that work within those specialities. I attend regular meetings and am a member of several groups within the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Cancer Alliance and Yorkshire and North East Lead Cancer Nurse Forum helping to support people living with and beyond cancer and the people who work within those specialities.
