The CTTT is required to deliver appropriate training/support, in connection with the implementation of Defence Medical Services new Primary Medical Care Information System, in cooperation with the external training provider.
An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Defence Medical Academy (DMAcad), to be part of a critical training team, supporting the roll out of new Medical Administration systems across the whole of Defence Medical Services (DMS) under Programme Cortisone. This will be a dynamic and challenging role, working within a business-critical area of MOD, supporting an essential programme impacting future healthcare provision.
Programme Cortisone is empowered to deliver the next generation of healthcare service provision for MOD under the following vision:

• Work in collaboration with both existing DMAcad Med IS and the external contractor as required
• Undertake all administration tasks required for both role and team, including returns, emails, meetings, etc
