Band 2 Radiotherapy Co-ordinator
Radiotherapy co-ordinators form part of the multidisciplinary team supporting the planning and delivery of radiotherapy treatment. You will be required to work as part of a team as well as being able to use your initiative and prioritise your own work.
Candidates should possess a professional attitude to their work and have the ability to work flexibly in a busy environment ensuring that the service we provide is correctly staffed at all times. This role combines a clerical and patient support function, previous experience of working with patients is desirable but not essential as training will be given. Our department is extremely busy and approximately 450 patients attend for treatment per day. Due to the nature of the Department you may need to deal with angry and upset patients, although this does not happen very often.
A basic understanding of radiotherapy treatment will be required with a more thorough understanding of the general patient pathway from referral to follow up. Experience with PAS and other hospital computer systems would also be an advantage.
The successful candidate will have a good standard of general education and be willing to undergo necessary training, including in-house electronic booking systems.
In return we can offer a friendly, supportive and dedicated working environment; we are committed to ensuring each member of the Radiotherapy Department has access to on-going development.
The post is based in the Radiotherapy Department, Bexley Wing, St James Institute of Oncology.
This vacancy may close before the advertised closing date if sufficient suitable applications are received.
We are committed to equal opportunities and welcome applications from all sections of the community, regardless of any protected characteristics. Reasonable adjustments will be made for disabled applicants where required.
