Nurses Network

Our Nurses Network is a nurse-led group which supports nurses working in haemato-oncology to improve blood cancer patient care.

Join our Nurses Network

The Blood Cancer UK Nurses Network gives nurses working in haemato-oncology an opportunity to learn from each other and share best practice to improve care for blood cancer patients.

The Network aims to:

  • Facilitate space for conversation, networking and sharing of best practice
  • Gain an understanding of issues faced by nurses treating haemato-oncology patients and initiate effective solutions
  • Provide opportunities to shape and influence the work we do, and contribute expertise and experience to projects that will provide real benefit to patients and the clinical community.

Membership is free. It's up to you how you get involved. You may prefer to just receive our regular updates. Or you can take part in surveys or focus groups, or lead on a project such as conference planning.

What will the Nurses Network mean for me?

The Network supports nurses working in haemato-oncology to improve patient experience.

The Network offers:

  • Access to our online education resources for healthcare professionals
  • Input into programmes we’re developing for nurses through the Nurses Working Group and other expert groups

Book a visit from our Healthcare Professional Liaison Officer

We're keen to meet healthcare professionals to talk about the resources and services we have on offer, and find out how Blood Cancer UK can do better to support everyone working in haemato-oncology and their patients.

We are really interested in connecting with as many hospitals and healthcare professionals working in haemato-oncology as possible. If you would like to set up a meeting with us, please email Gizem Koksal [email protected] or calling 0207 269 9015.

Support for your patients and their loved ones

We offer a range of ways to get support and connect with other people affected by blood cancer.

How we help

Our Forum exists to connect people affected by blood cancer with each other.

Our free confidential support line offers information and support to people living with blood cancer and their friends and family.

We have accurate, clear and up-to-date information about many different types of blood cancer. All our information is research-based and produced in consultation with patients, carers, medical advisers, Clinical Nurse Specialist and other health professionals. You can also download or order our free health information booklets and/or fact sheets.

Our Patient Need report

In 2013, we carried out the largest blood cancer patient research project known as Patient Need. In our report, we identified key findings to help us improve and support people affected by blood cancer.

We found that access to nurses is key to blood cancer patients' experience of the condition. We are very keen to work with nurses to support the workforce as best we can and improve the lives of people with blood cancer. We are also committed to working with other healthcare professionals working in haemato-oncology.
