‘Remain curious, never stop learning and speak up’
Macmillan nurse clinician Claire Ryan on the importance of seeking out a mentor in a chosen field of practice
I am a Macmillan nurse clinician at the Kent Oncology Centre at the Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. I maintain the professional leadership, consultancy and managerial responsibility for policy and service development that will deliver quality care for people who are living with secondary breast cancer and receiving treatment. Much of my practice is to assess a patient, make a diagnosis and provide treatment – like a doctor.
