Specialist nursing

Specialist nurses are dedicated to working in one particular area of nursing. In many cases they work with children who have long term conditions such as cancer, diabetes or epilepsy, supporting them emotionally, and helping them to learn how to manage their symptoms.

Within the children’s service we have a clinical nurse specialist, covering our oncology service.

Because the specialist nurse has a specific understanding of your child’s condition, they will be able to answer any questions you may have about their treatment both in hospital and at home.
