Diagnostic Radiography Workforce UK Census 2019

11 May, 2020
Topics: Chest, CT, Imaging, Managers, MRI, PET, Surveys, Ultrasound, X-ray


Each year the Society and College of Radiographers undertakes a UK-wide diagnostic radiography workforce census to gain intelligence about the clinical imaging radiography workforce. The 2019 census continues to show some high vacancy rates, particularly in England

At the time of writing, we are in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. This unprecedented crisis has reinforced the need for an adequately resourced, trained, flexible and responsive radiography workforce.

As we continue to meet the challenges and consequences for imaging services during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, it is undoubtedly an opportunity for the profession to influence governments. We urge service leaders to work with key stakeholders in regional networks to develop clear plans to support the growth of the workforce to meet the population’s needs at the local level.
