Sister Liz Robinson
Colorectal nurse specialist
Liz's areas of specialty are colorectal cancer and endoscopy.
She was the first colorectal nurse specialist in the region where she cared for patients with colorectal disease. She developed specialist interests in stoma care and the management of surgical inflammatory bowel disease and gastrointestinal failure.
After joining Northumbria Healthcare two years ago Liz developed this role to include endoscopy which she carried out at North Tyneside and Wansbeck general hospitals.
Liz will soon be joining the bowel cancer screening programme as it is rolled out across the region this year.
