Dr Sam HareDr Sam Hare is a consultant chest radiologist at Barnet Hospital, which is part of the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. He is also one of the lead radiologists for the London Cancer lung pathway board, responsible for improving regional lung cancer outcomes and patient experience. Dr Hare’s technical lung biopsy expertise has been acknowledged as providing earlier lung cancer diagnosis in a wider range of patients. The novel ambulatory lung biopsy service was awarded the inaugural NHS Innovation Challenge Prize for Cancer Care in 2016 in addition to the 2016 BMJ Award for Cancer Care Team of the Year (sponsored by Macmillan Cancer) & the 2016 HSJ Award for Acute Sector Innovation. Sam is currently focused on leading wider NHS adoption of ‘ambulatory lung biopsy’ and is working closely with NHS England to achieve this. As part of this ambition, he has established a national lung biopsy education course (POBAS) that will train clinicians from other hospitals to use the innovative technique.
