A men’s health charity is calling for experienced nurses to join its leadership and training programme.

Prostate Cancer UK is offering formal leadership training, individual coaching and ongoing peer support and learning through its Clinical Champions Programme.

Nurse applicants must be in permanent or fixed-term NHS role

The 18-month all-expenses paid programme will be run in partnership with leadership development organisation, Living Potential, and is due to start in April next year.

Applicants must be in a permanent or fixed-term NHS role for the length of the programme and need support from a senior executive in their organisation.

They also need detailed knowledge of prostate cancer care and should have the potential to lead and influence change.

A location for the programme is yet to be decided but will be at the same venue for its duration and nurses will need to book study leave to attend some of the sessions.

Prostate cancer services forced to adapt during pandemic

Prostate Cancer UK head of improving care Amy Rylance warned that men across the UK don’t always have equal access to diagnosis and treatment.

She said: ‘We know nurses play a crucial role in the prostate cancer pathway, which is why I’d encourage anyone with a passion to improve prostate cancer services in their area to apply.’

She added that the COVID-19 pandemic had caused ‘additional strain on resources’ which meant services had to adapt.

Applications are now open and will close at 5pm on Wednesday 6 January.
