Background

Radiographic Assistant Practitioners (AP), like general support staff, are likely to be from diverse backgrounds but they differ from the general support workforce in that, as part of their duties, they perform limited clinical imaging examinations in concert with, and under the supervision of, HCPC-registered Radiographers.

The Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR) receives requests from the UK diagnostic radiography community pertaining to the scope of practice of the qualified AP. One such request is the need for guidance on the AP’s role in Quality Control (QC) of radiological equipment. This briefing details such guidance and has been produced in collaboration with the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM). The Society and College of Radiographers wishes to gratefully acknowledge the support and advice of the IPEM Diagnostic Radiology Special Interest Group in the development of this guidance briefing.
