I am an experienced nurse lecturer with a specialist interest in oncology, haemto-oncology and general anatomy and physiology education at undergraduate level.  The move to viewing cancer as a long term condition has allowed me to develop this side of my practice.  I currently act as on the regional ambassadors for the United Kingdom Oncology Nursing Society.
