The Government will support up to 34 new prostate cancer nurses and ensure ongoing funding for existing nurses. As a result, there will be a total of 62 prostate cancer nurses funded by the Government providing specialist support for patients and their families and carers. This will improve continuity of care for prostate cancer patients, provide coordinated care following new diagnoses, and improve patient access to multidisciplinary specialists and services.
