Radiotherapy radiographic workforce census

Make your voice heard and respond by 24 December 2021

Published: 19 November 2021 College of Radiographers

The College of Radiographers is currently carrying out a radiotherapy radiographic workforce census, which sits alongside the similar workforce censuses being undertaken by IPEM Physics and RCR Clinical Oncologist.

Members working within radiotherapy services management will have received an email inviting them to complete the census. 

The results of this survey will inform the work of professional bodies, workforce planners (within each UK country), commissioners and providers of radiotherapy.

As always, we aim for a 100% response rate as it is important we obtain information from all centres delivering radiotherapy, both NHS and private centres, and from all the UK countries.

The data will be published by country and by cancer centre name. You can find previous submissions on the SoR website, including a PDF report summarising the findings for each census year, as well as the census responses in spreadsheet format available for you to download and use when analysing your own workforce.

Please answer the census on behalf of your cancer centre provider, including all radiographic staff within your budgetary control EXCEPT radiotherapy helpers and admin staff. This year we are including clinical support workers delivering radiotherapy in the figures and you will also be asked about workforce levels in each AfC band as of 1 November 2021.

The census may take up to 20 minutes to complete and you can gather all the required information using the PDF template of the questionnaire before submitting your response online. 

The deadline for responses is 24 December 2021. 

Please contact Spencer Goodman if you have any questions about this census.
