Anthony Nolan's Patient and Families Forum is a place where people can connect with others and share tips and advice about life before, during and after a stem cell or bone marrow transplant.
We want to make the forum a warm, lively place where people can post about their experiences of transplant. At the same time we need to make sure our members stick to the house rules – these make sure that the community is a safe and friendly environment where users can share information and offer support.
We’re looking for volunteers who are a minimum of two years post-transplant to help moderate the forum and to make it a useful and supportive place for other patients. The role involves welcoming new members, sharing aspects of your transplant experience and recovery, starting new topics of conversation and checking posts to make sure the community is used appropriately
To take on this role you will need to be a confident IT user and able to volunteer from home, using your own computer and internet connection, for around 2-5 hours per week. You’ll also need to be sensitive, good at communicating with people online in a friendly way and recognise the importance of confidentiality.
You will be supported in your role by our Patient Communication and Insight Coordinator by phone or by email. We can’t cover connection charges, but if you incur any other expenses as part of your involvement with the online community (for example, travel to attend meetings) we will reimburse these in line with Anthony Nolan’s expenses policy.
