Your feedback and experiences
I have a job interview tomorrow in the radiotherapy dept of my local hospital. its for the admin and reception side of things.
i am keen to get feedback (if i can) from patients as i will be dealing with many of them if i get the job (fingers crossed.)
what things made your experiences easier? did you find being able to phone not just 9-5 useful. were there plenty of appropriate facilites available to you? do you have any suggestions that could improve your local radiotherapy service?
sorry to ask so many questions! if you have anything else to add, please do or if you want to email off forum, please also do so!
very interesting site duck; thanks for the link. there are some interesting accounts of radiotherapy experiences from patients.
runnersbeen, that's a very good point about things for the little ones to play with. i had to go for a blood test at said local hospital on monday and there were no things for kids to play with and mini tweety started to throw one of her tantrums (we are currently awaiting a possible diagnosis of ASD for her) and i had to take her to the paeds outpatients afterwards so she could play and calm down. she did sit on one of the phlebotomists' laps and watched while i had my blood taken.
btw duck, mini's appt with child psychiatry has come through for two weeks today. not long to wait, thank goodness.
thank you all for your feedback. interview went well and fingers crossed.
i agree with you both about the location of radiotherapy services. my aunt had to travel nearly two hours a day for six weeks for her. my local hospital is a fairly new one following the merging of two older ones so its probably less local for some people but it is a bit more central.
congrats to both of you on your recoveries.
