Meet Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust serves a population of around 450,000 across the West Sussex area.
The project was based within the Uro-Oncology Team at Worthing Hospital, one of 3 hospitals within the Trust, where locally there is a higher proportion of men over 65 years of age compared to the England average.
The Uro–Oncology Specialist nursing team consists of two nurses (WTE) and sees 520 new urology patients a year.
The team identified that men on hormone therapy had unmet need and wished to address this with a clinical nurse specialist role.
