Clinical psychology and patient support services

The diagnosis and treatment of cancer can be a stressful time for patients and their families. The Clinical Nurse Specialists at Spire Murrayfield Hospital aim to provide emotional support and care for people and their families affected by cancer. 

At the Oncology Day Chemotherapy Centre at Spire Murrayfield Hospital patients have access to our breast and gynaecological cancer nurse specialist Ellie Bentley, our colon cancer nurse specialist Shirley Wood and our urological cancer nurse specialist Roma Martineau. 

Clinical Psychologists, Alison Tulloh and Carol Sutherland, are also available to counsel and meet with patients at all stages of their treatment journey.

To find out more about either of these specialist services, ask one of our oncology centre nurses.
