CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)-Plans for the next academic year. 

The teaching staff are now beginning to return to the School to resume their academic activities. They are working at a pace to change the way we deliver our courses. Moving forward, we will be using blended and e-learning methods. We aim to roll out the modules, which were postponed during the initial stages of COVID-19, in a phased approach, starting in September 2020, over an eight-month period. This is in line with Health Education England (HEE) who have proposed an extension to the education contract period. This is to allow time for the recovery of commissions that were postponed due to the pandemic.

As you will recognise because of COVID-19, plans are constantly changing so we will, as the situation evolves, endeavour to keep you informed. The health and wellbeing of our staff and students are our absolute priority. 

If you do have any questions or concerns, please refer to our Student Q&A page or contact us at Student Support Services for more information.

The Royal Marsden School hosted an evening event looking at the future of cancer care.

The event looked at what advances in cancer care mean for the education and training of nurses and allied health professionals. 

Presentations included:

  • Dr Jeremy Levy, Clinical Lead for Health Education England in North West London on 'Training staff for the future of cancer care: what should we do differently?'
  • Dr Pawan Randev, GP Clinical Lead in Transforming Cancer Services Team, Healthy London Partnership on 'Primary Care perspective on cancer: future priorities'
  • Shelley Dolan, Chief Nurse at The Royal Marsden on the new 'Accountable Cancer Network'
  • June Davis, National Cancer Rehabilitation Lead at Macmillan Cancer Support on 'Realising the potential of AHPs to support those with cancer in the future'

Feedback from those who attended has been very positive, and people valued getting a range of different professional perspectives. Comments have included: “The event helped me to understand the bigger picture” and “really useful links to utilise in practice”.

All of the presentations from the day can be downloaded below.

The School is planning to run further events exploring key issues in cancer care and education.
