Bing Smith

My initial nursing journey started in 2000 when I qualified as a Registered Nurse in China, I worked mainly on the thoracic and general surgical wards which I really enjoyed and this kick started my interest in lung cancer. I moved to the UK in 2010 and initially worked as a Registered Nurse on a Respiratory ward, where I further developed a knowledge base of respiratory illnesses and malignancies. I have been working as a Lung Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialist (LCNS) since 2017 covering both diagnostic and treatment pathway. Since undertaking this role, I have successfully completed BSc in Acute Care and Independent Prescriber qualification. I review patients who attend the lung cancer diagnostic clinic and oncology treatment review clinic.
My main interest is in the field of nurse led research and advanced clinical practice, I am currently a member of the data monitoring committee for NIHR research, “Fit4surgery”. I am an Associate PI for the “Improving Access and Recruitment to Clinical Trials for Lung Cancer Patients”. I am also a co-author for several posters which were accepted by LCNUK and UKONS.
My other interest is workforce planning. I started working as the Lead LCNS in Barts Health recently after 13 years of service in Surrey. I look forward to the new role. One of the main priorities for my role will be around workforce planning and collaborative working in the second largest cancer centre in the UK.
I am a keen advocate for the provision of equal service access for minority patient groups who have been diagnosed with lung cancer as I am aware that often these patient groups have significant barriers to accessing care, support and treatment.
I look forward to working with the LCNUK committee and LCNSs to develop research based practice to support our patients.
