    Hey!

    So I though I would have some luck in my not-so-winning lifestyle.

    I have my SHU interview for radiotherapy this Saturday. They want forms filled in by the radiotherapist I was with, but here is the problem :-/

    - Placement 1 has had the whole hospital knocked down and I can't find anyone who I was with, my friend can't either!

    - Placement 2. The radiotherapist has left and I can't find the bloke for my life. I search him and he is nowhere, my friend can't find him either.

    So I just rang up another hospital, and they have told me the head of Oncology unit has taken 2 weeks leave, and to call back on Monday to organise the placement.

    I emailed SHU admissions woman, and have no reply, I explained my issue but if I was to read what's happened I wouldn't be suprised If they think it's a bluff :'(

    I have no damn proof, all I have is what I wrote down and what I witnessed on placement.

    Help (((

    Email loads of nearby radiology departments looking for the people?

    Tough task to be honest...I'm sure the Admissions Tutot will reply before it's too late, they are probably very busy!

    Oh boy, if this true then woah this is awful. Is the Uni close to your home? You could potentially email them the form on a later date once you've got the signatures etc

    surely the hospital would have contact details, or proof you did w/e there.

    Is there anyone you worked with? Even if it wasn't a radiographer who can just say you were there and doing whatver you were doing? It's a tough one

    surely you should have a letter from the placement confirming your visit? you could use that to back yourself up if you need some sort of evidence that you attended?
    also on my work experience, I had to sign myself in and out every day so that the hospital had a record of me being there.

    Got an email from admission lady. She says to bring it up during iterview and that they can organise an RT experience for their benefit for me. And that the department I visited isn't satisfactory to what they require :-/

    Am giving a few hospitals a call in the morning to organise at RT trip for Thursday or Friday, just to get that form filled.

    The prev hospital is gone, and the second one was an 1 day visit you see. I just met the gentleman and left at the endd.


    My Sheffield interview is going to be hell When I have my City Interview on the 19th atleast i'll be alot better prepared.

    Contacted Addenbrooke's and ULC Hospital for a RT placement, but it will be AFTER my interview.

    The Admissions tutor told me that if offered a place, I will be put in a RT department if I can't get my own.

    Just need a placement before the 19th D:
