Colorectal Nurse Specialist Service

The service encompasses support, advice and empowering patients and their families to make decisions with regard to the different treatment options. This support is offered from diagnosis throughout the patient’s disease trajectory.

The aim of the Colorectal Nurse Specialist team is to provide support and information to patients and their families at the point of suspected and confirmed diagnosis of colorectal cancer throughout their care. The Colorectal Nurse Specialists also provide nurse-led follow up for patients who have been diagnosed with colorectal cancer at North Bristol NHS Trust.
