HC Deb 11 July 2002 vol 388 c1206W
Mr. Bruce George

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how many clinical nurse specialists there are in the field of skin cancer; [66658]

(2) what plans he has to increase the number of clinical nurse specialists in skin cancer. [66659]

Mr. Lammy

The Department does not collect information on nurse sub-specialities.

The NHS Cancer Plan sets out the Government's commitment to investment in cancer services, including the nursing work force. We expect to see an increase in specialist cancer nurses in line with needs identified in local cancer service delivery plans.
