Liz has been a registered nurse for 25 years, 20 of which have been spent working with cancer patients. She currently manages a chemotherapy unit in Essex and cannot imagine doing anything else apart from oncology nursing.
Liz has also worked in a variety of oncology specialist nurse roles including breast and blood cancers and has a in-depth understanding of what patients embarking on or completing cancer treatments need most advice about or help with finding out information on.
Coupled with this, Liz is also a cancer survivor herself having been diagnosed 18 years ago undergoing both chemo and radiotherapy so has been on the other side of the fence as well.
Liz understands how lonely it can feel being diagnosed with cancer and that not all patients get their questions answered within a relatively short clinic slot.
