A Sheffield healthcare worker who champions the needs of cancer survivors living with the long-term effects of the disease years after treatment has been recognised for her work.

Professor Diana Greenfield, a Macmillan consultant nurse based at the Royal Hallamshire and Weston Park hospitals has been honoured by the University of Sheffield.

She has been named as the university’s ‘Chair in Cancer Survivorship’ for the impact of her clinical and academic work locally, nationally and at international level.

Professor Greenfield champions the ‘Late Effects’ service at the Royal Hallamshire and Weston Park Hospitals to support the ongoing general health and wellbeing, physical and psychosocial needs of cancer survivors – including diabetes, infertility, obesity, high blood pressure, anxiety and depression.

She said: “I am truly honoured to have been recognised by the University of Sheffield for firmly putting cancer survivorship on the agenda.

“It is a privilege to look after people who have survived cancer, and learn from them every day.”

Professor Hilary Chapman, chief nurse for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, added: “I am delighted that Diana has been recognised by the University of Sheffield for improving care for cancer survivors. Not only has she helped to establish a truly inspirational consultant nurse role, but she has also led the way with the development of clinical services, promoting best practice and aiding greater understanding of the challenges cancer survivors face. Her new role will help fly the flag for Sheffield across many specialities.”
