ESC helps people living with advanced cancer to stay healthier for longer and have a better quality of life by providing personalised advice and support, including nutrition, wellbeing and managing pain.
Patients receiving ESC have lived longer and enjoyed a better quality of life during their treatment. They also remain healthier while being cared for so the service – which is being extended nationally – saves money for the NHS.
Dr Dan Monnery, Consultant in Palliative Care at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust, has led the initiative here. He said: “We were delighted to have been singled out for a nomination, but to win the award is overwhelming.
“ESC is one of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre’s biggest successes of recent times in palliative care and is now being rolled out across the country. This project highlights the huge contribution it is making to patient outcomes while at the same time reducing demand on services.”
“The fabulous ESC team here are pioneers in this important area of care and we are all extremely proud have won this award.”
Two other Clatterbridge Cancer Centre teams were nominated in the same category – Radiotherapy and Palliative Care Clinical Decisions Unit. Congratulations to them too on their amazing achievement.
