Nurse Specialists – Gynaecology Oncology Service


How we can help

Nurse specialists are registered nurses who are specialised in one aspect of nursing. They are educated and trained in that field.

The nurse specialist is available to help you and you family in the following ways:

  • providing information about gynaecological cancer
  • discussing treatment options
  • offering emotional support
  • providing information about sources of support
  • offering advice on financial support – please ask. You may be eligible to claim for benefits
  • helping you with symptom control
  • linking with other members of the team involved with your care and treatment, both in hospital and the community.

Please inform the nurse specialist if you need help with any of the above.
