8. Qualified diagnostic radiographers in post-registration training

On average each respondent has 3.3 qualified radiographers in post-registration training.

As a rough approximation, we can extrapolate the numbers in training to give an estimate for the total number of qualified diagnostic radiographers in post-registration training in the UK. The average band 5 and above headcount of respondents who answered this section of the census is 66.6. There were approximately 26,000 diagnostic radiographers registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as of 2 September 2014. Extrapolating the average number in training per respondent gives an estimate of a total of 1,288 qualified diagnostic radiographers in post-registration training in the UK (661 in ultrasound training, 305 in plain film training and 322 in other training). (This is a rough estimate as not all the band 5 and above health professionals captured by this census will be registered as radiographers with the HCPC.)
