Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Member led Special Interest Groups, Networks and Forums.

Welcome to the Special Interest Group page

Special interest groups (SIGs) are independent groups of members and non-members who are supported by the Society of Radiographers through promotion on our website. 

SIGs share information across their specialisms and are a fantastic place to connect with colleagues from across the UK

Starting in February 2022, we will be hosting lunchtime webinars to highlight the SIGs for radiotherapy. These will be co-chaired by members of the Radiotherapy Advisory Group (RAG) and will be an opportunity to hear presentations on key aspects of a site specialism and ask questions.

New SIG: RePAIR Special Interest Group

In response to the increase seen in student attrition and challenges with retention within healthcare training programmes, the Reducing Pre-registration Attrition and Improving Retention (RePAIR) project was set up by Health Education England (HEE) in 2015 to explore effective interventions to improve retention across the student journey – from pre-enrolment to two years post-qualification.
