Multi-disciplinary team (MDT) facilitator

The role of MDT facilitator within the head and neck cancer department is pivotal to ensure that all patients receive their diagnostic tests and treatment within the agreed timeframe, and in line with government targets (Cancer Waiting Times).

Once the tests are completed the facilitator ensures that the results are ready and available for discussion at the MDT in order that the clinicians and extended team can contribute in order to formulate an optimal treatment plan. 

All patients with a newly diagnosed head and neck cancer and all patients with recurrent disease are discussed at the MDT

The facilitator also enters data on diagnostic and treatment outcomes onto a national head and neck audit facility which can be used to influence future treatment pathways.
