We appreciate that it can often be difficult to get financial support from your employer to attend events, so we are able to offer support for travel expenses for those that will be unable to attend our Clinical Nurse Specialist event due to financial restrictions.

Unfortunately we are unable to cover additional expenses to externally organised events and conferences at this time.

If you’re working towards a specialist or advanced practice role in prostate cancer, we can support you with a bursary to undertake the Masters degree in Prostate Cancer Care (distance learning) with Sheffield Hallam University.

Receiving a bursary from Prostate Cancer UK allows me to undertake and focus on my dissertation without financial worry. It is encouraging to know I have the support, interest and backing of a national, well-known charity.
