Recommendations

In view of the findings emerging from this investigation the following recommendations to the SCoR are made:

  • Encourage and facilitate greater standardisation and harmonisation of roles across trusts in line with the spirit of Agenda for Change
    i) by pursuing high level discussions with the Departments of Health
    ii) by working closely with the NHS Staff Council to guarantee as fair a system as possible in advance of the new on call arrangements
  • Expedite the integration of the CPF in all departments, and encourage the use of the KSF at appraisals
  • Increase support and develop better training programmes to help managers value appraisals and conduct them more effectively
  • Promote the advantages and benefits of protected study time for the workforce, and promote radiographers’ active engagement with research
  • Develop a new contemporary system of professional titles, which may go some way to restoring professional identity, which many feel has been eclipsed by AfC banding
  • Through the use of the SCoR website, invite trust managers to provide information on whether they recognise the CPF and Annex T, whether they provide protected study time, and whether they appoint consultants. This will enable the mobile workforce to be more discerning as to where they seek employment.
