Have just applied for a job on-line. For the NHS. No need to panic, the only surgery I get involved in is clipping my nails.
No, this job is just driving supplies backwards and forwards, doesn’t involve any contact with patients at all.
FOUR HOURS later, yep 240 minutes, it has been completed and is winging it’s way to NHS central.
Who designs these application forms ??
One of the questions was “Do you hold a certificate to support your responsibilites under IR(ME)R 2000 ?”
Seems a bit of a long-winded way of asking if I have a driving licence, but thought I better check it out. Googled IR(ME)R 2000, this is what I found:
“The Ionising Radiation (medical exposure) Regulations 2000 implement for Great Britain the majority of the provisions of EC Directive 97/43/Euratom which concerns the protection of persons undergoing medical exposures. The regulations came into force on 1 January 2000 and replace the previous regulations known as POPUMET (Protection of Persons Undergoing Medical Examination or Treatnent).”
Well, thank goodness i’ve got that straight then!
