Former radiographers targeted in new return to practice campaign

Published: 10 April 2018 Ezine

A new initiative to attract former radiographers and other allied healthcare professionals back into practice has been launched by Health Education England.

Radiographers who previously worked in the NHS are to be given the support and guidance they need to renew their registration with the Health and Care Professions Council. 

The target for the campaign is to have 300 former professionals registered by 2018/19.

A number of new resources have been added, including real-life case studies of pracitioners sharing their experiences, video interviews with returnees and promotional resources to download.

Professor Lisa Bayliss-Pratt, Chief Nurse, Health Education England, said: “There are many fantastic healthcare professionals with lapsed registration that have years of knowledge and experience as members of the therapeutic and diagnostic caring team. We need you.”

“If you are passionate about making a difference to patients and their families and careers, then this opportunity will be of interest,” she continued.

"If you are a highly compassionate individual who would like to return to the profession that you left - this is for you. We will be with you every step of the way, from helping to find a returner programme that is right for you, through to sourcing placements, as well as completing your assessments.”
