Gibraltar: versatility and flexibility in cancer care

Christine Gill Breast care nurse specialist, Gibraltar Health Authority

The healthcare system in this British overseas territory is based on the NHS, but there are differences in nursing care

As a nurse working in Gibraltar, I am often struck by just how many differences exist in nursing care developments there compared with mainland UK. Gibraltar, a British overseas territory, enjoys a unique position at the south western tip of Europe. Healthcare services are provided by the Gibraltar Health Authority to the approximately 34,000 residents and about a further 10,000 cross-frontier workers. The healthcare model is closely based on the NHS.
