Appendix A

Recommendations from Mathers et al (Imaging Services in Scotland, 2007) and Imaging Services in England and Wales (2008):

  • Child centered facilities and policies for imaging children in adult departments be developed and implemented
  • Formal links be established between radiographers in children’s hospitals and those in other hospitals in order to establish and maintain good practice
  • Radiographers should engage with children to obtain their views on the services they provide. This would adhere to the UK Government’s patient focus public involvement agenda
  • Professional bodies should provide guidance for the improvement of imaging services for children to ensure staff are adequately trained and policies are in place to ensure effective practice
  • Universities throughout the UK should be encouraged to provide courses in paediatric radiography practice and service provision.
