This document is for use by radiographers, sonographers, their managers, and commissioners in the four countries of the UK. Practitioner autonomy / freedom to act, combined with a constant need to apply high-level skills, knowledge, leadership, and critical decision-making across a breadth of practice areas, truly defines the consultant allied health professional role. It is expected that consultant-level radiographers and sonographers are proficient and dynamic experts, moving between the four pillars of clinical practice, strategic leadership and consultancy, education and development, and research, according to local service demands.
The guidance publication includes information on job planning, a training framework, illustration of impact, and example job descriptions. The intention is to support the development of a cohesive and sustainable consultant radiographer and sonographer workforce, ultimately providing job satisfaction for staff, aiding with recruitment and retention, and improving patient care, experience, and outcomes across healthcare and partner organisations.
