UK Diagnostic Radiography Workforce Census 2021

This College of Radiographers census is open for responses until 10 December 2021.

Published: 01 November 2021 College of Radiographers

The results of this census will inform the work of professional bodies, workforce planners and commissioners/providers of radiography education. 

In these challenging times, the importance of diagnostic imaging and the need for an adequately resourced workforce has been recognised. Obtaining accurate and up to date information on the radiographic workforce is essential and undoubtedly offers an opportunity for the profession to influence policy-makers. 

Who should complete the census

  • The census should ideally be completed by the Radiology Services Manager (or equivalent) on behalf of all diagnostic radiography (medical imaging) services provided by their hospital/workplace.
  • If you are responsible for multiple sites, please provide one response on behalf of all those sites.
  • If you are a national independent/private healthcare provider, you may provide one single response to cover all your UK sites if that is easier for you.

We do appreciate that you are required to submit data to many other organisations but would urge that you complete our census as we are the recognised voice for the radiographic profession.

It is important we obtain information from all organisations delivering diagnostic radiography services for people, both NHS and independent sector providers, and from all the UK countries.

The results will be published on the SoR website and the data will be published by country and by organisation/department name.

Please note 

  • This census may take you up to 45 minutes to complete. 
  • Some respondents find it useful to gather all the required information using this PDF template of the questionnaire before submitting their response online.
  • If you are unable to complete the online census in one sitting, you will be able to save your progress and return later.
  • We would be grateful if you would complete the census by 10 December 2021.
