Steve Elliott, Clinical Nurse Manager

My name is Steve Elliott, and I’m a Clinical Nurse Manager at the Edinburgh Cancer Centre. I support the nursing teams to deliver the best care and treatment possible for people living with cancer in the Lothians and beyond.

“I’m extremely proud to have worked for NHS Lothian for the last 30 years, and I’m equally proud to be an NHS Lothian Charity Ambassador. I’ve seen first-hand the power that gifts from generous donors can have on the healthcare journey. From ground-breaking research and cutting-edge technology to the everyday things that make hospitals feel less clinical, NHS Lothian Charity is there to make healthcare better for everyone.

“NHS Lothian Charity supports some of the best researchers in the country who are working hard to fight, treat and cure many health conditions in pioneering ways. Cancer is on the rise, 1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime. Our Edinburgh Cancer Centre is a world-class leader in cancer care, striving for earlier detection and higher survival rates in patients. NHS Lothian Charity has provided funding for specialist colleagues who are conducting life-changing clinical research trials to achieve this.

“I know that care is much more than treatments and medicines. The environment we treat patients in is also hugely important. There is extensive evidence that the use of art in healthcare settings to create therapeutic spaces reduces anxiety and stress, accelerates recovery, reduces medication use, and shortens the length of stays in hospital.

“Because of generous supporters, NHS Lothian Charity can invest in creating spaces with comfortable chairs for healing, and therapeutic art that provides a welcome distraction. It is small changes, but they make a big difference.”
