The activities of the CNS in secondary care have had positive outcomes, as the nurse-led support at biopsy has reduced the average waiting time between having the biopsy and receiving histology results by nine days. Overall, patients are better informed as a result of the more holistic support offered by the nurse at biopsy and diagnosis, with patients able to have ‘a much more meaningful conversation’ with the consultant. Secretarial staff received fewer calls from patients, particularly about test results. Instead, calls were directed to the CNS who had already had personal contact with the patient. The CNS was able to provide clinical and emotional support and notify patients of results over the phone, at all stages of their journey. In addition, the service has significantly reduced the time between the biopsy and a consultant-led appointment. Awareness of the service has spread by word of mouth and feedback obtained indicates that it makes a difference to those who use it. Supportive consultants were key to the development of the CNS post. Since appointment, the CNS has also been involved in providing support to the Consultant Urologist to explore a shared care model for the management of men with prostate cancer in Fife. Although the CNS workload in contributing to the shared care model is too early in its development to have yet realised all its desired outcomes, progress towards a shared care model will be a legacy of this work.
