    Summary

    CoR is pleased to publish the 2008-2009 Approval and Accreditation Board (AAB) Report. The purpose of the report is to draw together the activity of the AAB by including data on the approval and accreditation work of the Board. Data and statistics from the Education Institution Annual Monitoring Survey constitute a significant proportion of the report. These statistics provide a mainly quantitative overview of the position of radiographic education within the UK. This will enable education providers, including providers of clinical imaging and radiotherapy services, to compare their own data with national data and to extract key areas where they may have further work to do or areas where they can share their good practice with the rest of the radiographic community.

  • Census of the Radiotherapy Radiographic Workforce in the UK, 2015

    SUPERSEDED AND ARCHIVED Date published: 22 June, 2016 Topics: Radiotherapy

    Summary

    This report has been produced by the Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR). It is intended to update the UK national radiotherapy workforce surveys from 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. This report provides a summary of the UK radiotherapy radiographic workforce in the National Health Service (NHS) and private/independent healthcare sector. It is deemed to be of interest to the NHS England Radiotherapy Clinical Reference Group and similar groups in the other UK countries, the Radiotherapy Board, NHS Centre for Workforce Intelligence, Health Education England, Local Education and Training Boards, the Migration Advisory Committee and commissioners and providers of radiotherapy.

  • Ultrasound examination times and appointments

    SUPERSEDED AND ARCHIVED – View the latest version Date published: 22 July, 2015 Topics: Managers, Ultrasound

    Summary

    SCoR issues this updated guidance on ultrasound examination times and appointments (first published March 2013) which includes updated weblinks. SCoR is aware that sonographers working for some NHS Trusts, Health Boards or other Imaging Service Providers are coming under increasing pressure to reduce the time allowed for ultrasound examination appointments. In addition, there have also been instances where extra appointments have been added prospectively to a booked list as a way of compensating for patients who do not attend (DNA).

    Summary

    The Royal College of Radiologists, Society and College of Radiographers and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine regard it as essential that, for the whole of the UK, we achieve cancer survival rates equivalent to the best in Western Europe. Improving the quality of radiotherapy is a key component of increasing survival rates along with initiatives to achieve earlier diagnosis. We expect an increasing demand for radiotherapy as the population ages. Highest quality of technical radiotherapy with respect to planning and delivery will maximise cancer survival, minimise late effects and achieve the optimum therapeutic ratio.

    Summary

    The Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR) receives many enquiries that relate to ultrasound training, employment, registration and professional indemnity insurance.  Many of these enquiries are from sonographers who trained overseas or would like to undertake ultrasound training in the United Kingdom (UK).  It is hoped that the following will answer many of the more common queries.

    JOINT DOCUMENT:  Society and College of Radiographers, British Institute of Radiology and Royal College of Radiologists
     
    The Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR), The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) and the British Institute of Radiology (BIR) have jointly produced this Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (IR(ME)R) 2000 guidance document, with support from Public Health England (PHE) and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM). The document is aimed at employers and staff who provide clinical imaging and interventional radiology services using ionising radiations.
     
    The document explains the principles behind the regulations and endeavours to clarify misconceptions. Scenarios have been included to provide examples and advice on practical issues relating to the regulations in order that the document is more user friendly. The advice given is wide-ranging and does not undermine an employer’s legal responsibilities for implementing compliant local procedures.
