I am an associate breast cancer clinical nurse specialist (CNS), specialising in ovarian function suppression (OFS) and herceptin-based therapies. I have been in the band 6 role for seven months. I have always wanted to be an oncology CNS, so when this job came up covering maternity leave for a breast cancer CNS, I jumped at the opportunity. I was interviewed and thrilled to be appointed to the role.
