Summary

New working patterns constitute changes to terms and conditions of employment and must be properly agreed, collectively or individually by employees. They need to be carefully planned, risk assessed prior to implementation, implemented with a clear audit of practice programme to run alongside the new working pattern, and reviewed and refined in the light of audit outcomes. Audit of practice is a routine expectation of a radiographer so this should not be a new expectation. Rather, it will extend to include analyses of practice relative to time of day/day of week, and be considered alongside periodic review of the effectiveness of the new working pattern.
