What is a Macmillan Gynaecology Nurse Specialist?

Macmillan logo

This is a Macmillan Nurse who specialises in the care of women with gynaecological cancers and their families.  She may also be known as your key worker.

Our role is to offer emotional support, information and practical advice from the time of diagnosis, throughout the course of treatment and afterwards.

The Macmillan Gynaecology Nurse is a member of the Multi-disciplinary Team who works both on the wards and in the out-patient department.

We try to help with all aspects of cancer, treatments and living with cancer and if cancer returns.   We are supported by a Menopause Nurse Specialist and Psychosexual Service.

Patients and relatives can also access The Macmillan Cancer Information Centre. Here we have up to date, accurate information on all aspects of cancer, both in written form and DVDs and CDs.  Information in different languages is also available.  There is support with internet access and finding information from reputable sites.
