The role of specialist oncology nurses has developed significantly in recent years with new ways of working. This article describes a partnership project between a large cancer centre and a pharmaceutical company that resulted in the establishment of specialist nurse-led survivorship clinics as part of a follow-up
pathway for patients with ovarian cancer. The reduced need for consultant-led follow up and the favourable feedback from patients support the need for oncology nurses to increase their profile in clinics.
