This would be ideal for someone who would like to gain more experience in the cancer or informatics field. The teams are based in the Bexley Wing at St. James’s University Hospital.


Multi Disciplinary Teams (MDT’s) have evolved over the last few years with the remit to discuss and plan care for all patients with a diagnosis of known or suspected cancer. The post-holder will be expected to lead a team to prepare, organise and support MDT meetings to ensure patient pathways are progressed. This includes preparing, producing and disseminating lists of patients for discussion and capturing accurate data during the MDT, including live typing within the MDT to support the process.


You will play an important part in tracking the patient journey from the point of suspicion or diagnosis of cancer to treatment and be responsible for ensuring the required datasets are collated, accurately entered and monitored effectively to comply with local and national expectations and standards in terms of the Cancer Outcomes & Services Dataset (COSD), Cancer Waiting Times, Chemotherapy and National Audit data.


The post-holder will be able to demonstrate excellent organisational, interpersonal and communication skills; be able to work well under pressure and on their own initiative. We require an individual with administrative experience, competent IT skills and strong attention to detail. The role includes responsibility for line-managing support workers, so experience of supervising staff is desirable. You will be responsible for the prioritisation and delegation of the workload of the team to meet service demand therefore will need to work well under pressure. You will be expected to be an enthusiastic member of the team, making a valuable contribution to the overall performance of the service. You should have the ability to maintain an open and supportive relationship with your team, encouraging professional development and demonstrating flexibility within the role.


You will take an administrative lead in the preparation of key documentation and collating of evidence as part of an Annual Assessment of Service Provision in line with National Peer Review Measures. You will work closely with Clinicians, Specialist Nurses, Secretaries and all members of the MDT and with associated departments to ensure that patients on a Cancer Pathway are actively managed through the Patient Pathway.
