Over his career, Charles Campion-Smith has influenced local and UK clinical and educational practice in cancer and palliative care. For the past ten years he’s worked as a Macmillan GP and GP adviser supporting key primary care programmes.
Charles’ great strengths have been to build consensus across disciplines and to ‘get things done’. These have led to the creation of the highest quality cancer services. He’s been instrumental in the development and sustainability of the Macmillan GP community. As well as this, Charles has led the development of a new course to support practice nurses to play an enhanced role in the support of people affected by cancer, which is being delivered across the UK.
He’s also applied his expertise further afield, when he and his wife (a qualified nurse) spent time in Tanzania. There they worked with local health educators, increasing skills and knowledge relating to palliative care and end of life.
What’s more, Charles is a dedicated Macmillan fundraiser. Noticeably in 2013, when he got on his bike and cycled to the UK ... from Greece.
Charles is a true Macmillan ambassador who has given everything to ensure no one has to face cancer alone.
