Emma Halkyard

The Christie NHS Foundation Trust

I’ve worked as an oncology nurse for more than 20 years: since 2014 as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner in the lung cancer team at The Christie Hospital in Manchester. I’m highly motivated and enthusiastic. I’m keen to push the boundaries of specialist nursing, having set up a nurse-led clinic for mutation-driven lung cancer and currently in the process of establishing a regional small cell lung cancer service to enable rapid access to treatments with the aim of achieving ambitious national standards (GIRFT and NLCA). I am co-chair of the Nurse subgroup of the Greater Manchester Lung Cancer Pathway Board and have an interest in driving strategic change to improve outcomes for patients as well as advocating for lung nurses in the region. I have a special interest in mutation-driven lung cancer, raising awareness of never-smoker lung cancer, improving access to treatments for small cell lung cancer, nurse-led services and nurse leadership in the MDT.
