Thanking Caroline Jones this Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Date of release: 22 October 2021 

Caroline Jones, Lead Breast Care Nurse, received a surprise visit from our Chief Executive, David Loughton today. 

Dedicating more than 40 years to the NHS, 26 of which at The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (RWT), Caroline has been instrumental in developing the service. 

Latest News: Thanking Caroline Jones this Breast Cancer Awareness Month

in 1981, she started her training at the Royal Hospital working on a surgical ward, progressing to become a Breast Care Clinical Nurse Specialist in 1995. 

Since then, Caroline has put all her efforts into the Breast Care Nursing Service, leading the ‘self-managed pathway’ service for breast cancer patients at the Trust.

She also attended the ‘Aspiring Matrons’ course. Following this, she was able to successfully set up her own fast-track patient clinic for under 35-year olds.

Very recently, she has helped develop a new breast pain clinic. The clinic promotes good health and awareness of breast pain. This is vital as over 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK – making it the most common type of cancer. 

Jennie Stain, Clinical Nurse Specialist Breast Care said: “As a leader and a colleague, Caroline comes up with innovative ideas for the service each day. Her patient care is second to none and her experience in the service enables it to grow and expand. Without Caroline, the service wouldn’t be as thought of as it is today for patients and colleagues.”

Thank you for your commitment towards the service Caroline, it is so great to see the new ways evolve to help breast cancer patients.
