Mesothelioma UK funds a team of 25 dedicated nurses. The nurses are based in NHS hospitals across the UK, each focused on ensuring mesothelioma expertise is available at the front door of the NHS.

The team includes Liz Darlison, Mesothelioma UK Head of Services and Consultant Nurse at the University Hospitals of Leicester, who provides clinical leadership within the charity, supported by Nurse Team Leaders covering the UK’s northern, midland and southern regions.

Of the other Clinical Nurse Specialists, most are employed through Mesothelioma UK funding and some are adopted meaning they are supported to maintain their mesothelioma expertise and focus through Mesothelioma UK support, education and travel grants.
