ARCAS FUNDS FIRST CANCER SUPPORT NURSE FOR ARRAN
December 21st 2019
For 30 years, ArCaS has been helping the cancer patients on Arran with transport, wellbeing therapies and other services.
Now Arran has a new ArCaS Support Nurse: Kate Jenks, already a well known community nurse, has taken up the role. A spokeswoman said "We are aware that everyone is different and would like all on Arran to know that Kate is available to help answer any queries or help with any arrangements should you wish. As well as seeing individual people and working alongside the health and social care team, the aim of this role is to work towards a sustainable service for Arran residents."
The part time role within the NHS, which ArCaS is initially funding for 3 years, will be administered by the North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership.
Kate can be contacted on 07917 070896 or 01770 601052.
