DipHe trained Nurse who then topped-up and gained a BSc(Hons) in Nursing Practice. Having worked as a surgical nurse from qualifying, I am now a Macmillan Uro-Oncology Clinical Nurse Specialist working for University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust supporting and caring for patients with new and existing urological cancers.
Finished radiotherapy ,Mid October,then to have 3 monthly checks ,alternately ,urology and oncology. 1st check with urology,no mention of having PSA test beforehand. So contacted Lorraine for advice. "Yes PSA check essential,get a GP appointment,let me know when done and i will e-mail you with result as soon as known" Blood test,friday--e-mail from Lorraine 11am Monday with result and comment. It cannot be better than this,i would be "lost in the system" without her help. FANTASTIC McMillan nurse! Paul Harley
Once again Lorraine takes time in her busy schedule to return my call to her and answer my questions fully,with explanations that are understandable . She has also taken a query i have ,to discuss with my oncologist and if needed will organise the relevant prescription for me. Surely this must be the BEST service you could wish for! I am most grateful ,once again ,for her speedy help and assistance Many thanks Lorraine Paul H
We walked in to see Lorraine feeling a little traumatised but we left her feeling totally reassured about the 'journey' ahead. It is just so comforting to know that she us there for us if we need her.
Had a query regarding the dose of my new medication,left message for Lorraine asking if she could help Mobile phone call reply at 5-35pm SAME DAY! Dosage sorted and additional information given. You cannot get better service than this,thankyou yet again Lorraine W
