Apart from a short while as a district staff nurse, and intensive care nursing, the remainder of my career has been in cancer nursing, as a ward sister, nurse manager, lead cancer nurse and eventually cancer nurse director with the Northern Ireland Cancer Network. After a long nursing career in cancer services, I left the health service in 2013 to work in the independent sector, in a post that was about supporting those involved in cancer service development across the UK. My current job title is Macmillan Special Adviser for System Redesign.
