3. Vacancies

36 responding departments (61%) reported unfilled sonographer posts in their department. The sonographer vacancy rate across the 59 responding departments is 18.1%. (The vacancy rate is calculated using the number of WTE unfilled posts as a percentage of the WTE establishment figures.) This compares to a vacancy rate of 10.9% in the 2011 survey.

The main reason for vacancies is that departments are unable to recruit suitable applicants.

How many sonographer posts are currently unfilled in terms of WTE?
