SCoR Policy

A sonographer has a professional responsibility to ensure that the time allocated for an examination is sufficient for it to be carried out and reported on competently and for critical and urgent findings to be dealt with appropriately.  This is vital for safe patient management.

It is not acceptable in terms of patient safety or staff safety to attempt to manage or compensate for possible DNAs by prospectively over-booking an ultrasound list. If there is a DNA problem, it should be addressed as indicated in the guidance below.
