  • Chair

    Alison Hill, Lead Cancer Nurse, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

    Alison Hill is currently the Trust Lead Cancer Nurse at UCLH where she has been since 2013.  She has worked in cancer care for over 20 years including roles in London, and outside London. Following clinical posts in London and Oxford Alison was appointed as a ward sister at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London. This led to a number of posts as a Macmillan nurse in both community and hospital services and then a move to work for the charity as a Regional Development Manager.  Working for the Charity developed her interest in strategic planning and subsequent appointment to roles in the Cancer Networks in Norfolk and London and in cancer commissioning.

    Alison’s two main clinical areas of interest remain hospital palliative care and the role of the clinical nurse specialist.
