‘I meet patients and families at some of the most devastating times’
Nurse specialist Joanne Hargrave discusses her unique, empathetic and collaborative role
I have a combined role as a thoracic surgery and mesothelioma UK nurse specialist based at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London. I work alongside thoracic surgeons and oncologists in the treatment of patients with mesothelioma, primary lung or metastatic cancer involving the chest. I am one of 18 mesothelioma lung nurse specialists in the UK.
