Main Responsibility

The core purpose of the MDT Coordinator is to provide consistent patient-centred focus throughout the pathway of care, by providing one point of contact along the administration pathway for the Multidisciplinary Teams (MDTs).  This will ensure coordination of the patient journey, especially for patients that need to move between cancer units and cancer centres.  The MDT Coordinator will be responsible for tracking the patient along their care pathway with the team and identifying potential breaches of cancer waiting times and targets.

The role will ensure that all relevant patients are discussed at MDT meetings with supporting clinical information.  Also, accurate prescriptive data collection and recording to enable effective patient tracking of all suspected and positively diagnosed cancer patients.

The post holder will be responsible for the coordination and organisation of the multi-disciplinary team meetings, and will attend these meetings obtaining and recording relevant information. He/she will collect, record and report cancer information as required in order to meet both national and local requirements.

The post holder will be responsible for the coordination of reports, investigations, radiology results and clinic appointments.  He/she will be required to work closely and proactively with the clinical teams and work collaboratively within the cancer services team ensuring the consistent delivery of service.

This might include funding for a care certificate, a degree or leadership qualifications. Or it might include days off to study, engage in CPD or rotational placements to help you hone your skills. Wherever you are heading in the NHS, we'll help you get there.
