Objectives of the College of Radiographers

The Society and College of Radiographers operate in a seamless way and have common fundamental objectives (known as the ‘objects’) concerned with the promotion and development of medical imaging and radiotherapy, the promotion of study and research into radiography, and the promotion of public awareness of the profession. These objectives are seen to be directly in the public benefit. 

  • To promote and develop for the public benefit the science and practice of radiography and radiotherapeutic technology and allied subjects.
  • To promote, study and research work in radiography and radiotherapeutic technology and allied subjects and to publish the results of all such study and research.
  • To further public education therein

Every three years the College of Radiographers Board of Trustees agrees a strategy with further detailed objectives.  Very often, these complement the Society objectives agreed by UK Council for the Professional Body.

The Society of Radiographers has two additional objectives:

  • To protect the honour and interests of persons engaged in the practice of radiography and radiotherapeutic technology and allied subjects including the regulation of relations between such persons and employers and employers’ associations.
  • To further all such objects which a trade union may lawfully pursue in accordance with statute.
