The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Clinical Nurse Specialists

The sarcoma nurse specialist is a key member of the Sarcoma Multi-Disciplinary team, which consists of specialists who make recommendations about your investigations, treatment and follow up.

For patients who have been referred to the Sarcoma MDT, the Nurse Specialists are available for:

  • Queries related to The Sarcoma Service/MDT.
  • Queries related to our referral pathway/process.
  • Queries related to any investigations/tests we have recommended.

 

For all patients with a confirmed diagnosis of sarcoma, you will be allocated a Sarcoma Nurse Specialist (sometimes referred to as a Macmillan Nurse or Keyworker). They will support and guide you through all the tests, treatment and any follow up appointments. They are your main point of contact in the hospital. The sarcoma team has three nurse specialists:

  • Cathy Wallis - Clinical Nurse Specialist - 0113 2068902
  • Josie Pawson - Clinical Nurse Specialist - 0113 2068988
  • Georgina Martin - Clinical Nurse Specialist - 0113 2067646

For general/non-medical enquires, please contact our admin support colleague, Mandy Brown, on 0113 2068966.
