First class cancer nurses graduate
NHS Lanarkshire nurses top of the class
NHS Lanarkshire Cancer Nurses
A GROUP of NHS Lanarkshire cancer nurses proved they are top of the class after completing specialist university degrees.
Angela Tonner, Lindsay Fingland, Lorna Maxwell, Jane Robertson and Susan Nayles, who all work at Monklands Hospital, succeeded in their studies while combining their crucial full-time roles providing first class care to cancer patients.
Sheena Kilpatrick, NHS Lanarkshire’s head of cancer services, said: “This is a great achievement for haematology and oncology nursing staff. I would like to pass on my congratulations to all five members of staff.”
Teresa Rennie, lead haematology-oncology nurse, added: “I’d just like to say well done to the girls for their achievements – especially as I know how difficult it must have been to complete their studies while working full time.
“Having successfully completed these degrees brings a direct benefit to cancer services as it increases the level of knowledge within the team.”
