NHS England short of more than 400 specialist cancer nurses, report says

NHS cancer services are struggling with widespread shortages of specialist nurses who give patients drugs, help them through their illness and care for those who are dying, a report reveals. Hospitals in England have vacancies for more than 400 specialist cancer nurses, chemotherapy nurses, palliative care nurses and also cancer support workers, raising doubts about the NHS’s ability to cope with the fast-growing number of people being diagnosed with the disease.
