Following the employer’s procedures

At this stage, an AP might be ready to be entitled by the employer or to have their scope of practice increased on an existing entitlement. As an IR(ME)R operator, they are legally responsible for the practical actions they undertake and must follow the employer’s procedures at all times. The AP should be made aware of this prior to their being entitled by the employer and, as with other staff, they should know the limitations of their practice.

The SCoR expects that any AP in membership maintains their place on the College of Radiographers (CoR) Voluntary Register for Accredited APs.6,7 The SCoR Accredited AP in SCoR membership is covered by the Professional Indemnity Insurance8 for all IR(ME)R duties providing there is evidence of adequate training, entitlement and compliance with the employer’s procedures.
