Summary

Following the submission of the Scope of Practice report in 2008 the SCoR commissioned the University of Hertfordshire and the Institute for Employment Studies (IES) to undertake exploratory work on the adoption and diffusion of the career progression frame work and to investigate the evidence for impact of introduction of these roles.

The outcome of this work is reported here. The research captured data on issues relating to consultant appointment, impact on service operations and service improvement and hence their immediate impact on clinical imaging services at two National Health Service (NHS) trusts in England.  Based on the outcomes of the study, recommendations are made for a larger study embracing clinical imaging and radiotherapy within the UK as a whole.
