We provide high-quality, safety-critical, patient-centred care for patients with a lung cancer diagnosis. Working on the front line of cancer care, LCNSs manage and deliver complex and personalised care to patients from the point of diagnosis throughout their cancer journey. We provide information and support to help patients and their families understand different treatment options, manage the symptoms of disease and any side-effects of treatment, and to live as well as they can for as long as they can.
The wider team includes many other professionals in Lung Cancer Care: Respiratory Consultants, Oncology Consultants, Acute Oncology Team, Respiratory and Oncology administrative support colleagues.
Acute Oncology Service: this team of health professionals will be involved in your care only once established on systemic anti-cancer treatment. Their purpose is to support you if you develop any side effects of treatment (chemotherapy, radiotherapy or immunotherapy). After they assess your symptoms they will provide the support you require, be it a specific medication, a GP review or potentially admission into the Victoria Hospital. Your allocated oncologist will provide the cancer treatment helpline number when you meet with them to discuss, consent and proceed to this type of systemic anti-cancer treatment.
