Clinical nurse specialist – lung cancer

GIRFT has recruited three new clinicians to lead its lung cancer workstream and is now looking for three lung cancer specialist nurses to join the team on a fixed term contract.

The successful applicants will join the clinical leads using the proven GIRFT methodology, relating to the delivery of the Optimal Lung Cancer pathway and variations in care across England. Providers will be benchmarked against one another and best practice, with each trust receiving a comprehensive review of their data and receiving support to tackle the challenges and findings behind the variation that the review highlights. The report will also be shared with the relevant Cancer Alliances and Specialised Commissioning Commissioners to support system wide issues to be identified and jointly resolved.

The aim is to visit all trusts within a six-month timeline from November 2019 to April 2020; this will help ensure the findings can be implemented in a timely manner and to meet with the requirements of the optimal pathway.
