Bursaries for training of reporting radiographers

14 June, 2018

A £150,000 scheme to support the early diagnosis of cancer through the development of diagnostic staff and improvements in patient care has been launched by Yorkshire Cancer Research and the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Cancer Alliance.

The money is to support a bursary scheme for radiographers and clinical endoscopists, either fully qualified or in training.

The scheme offers 15 radiographers up to a maximum of £5000 each to encourage excellence and innovation in diagnostic practice.

Successful applicants can use their individual bursaries to support education or ongoing professional development that will improve the safety or quality of radiography services.

More experienced staff may also consider using the funding for service developments and improvements which champion the involvement of patients in service design, and the development of information resources that support awareness and decision-making for patients.

Funding for the two-year scheme has been secured by the Alliance from the national Cancer Transformation Fund as part of a wide-ranging programme of improvements in cancer care across West Yorkshire and Harrogate, including early diagnosis.

See the Excellence and Innovation In Practice information pack, as well as other details and award conditions.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon, Friday, 5 July 2018.
