Charlotte Beardmore, Director of Professional Policy at the Society said: “It is still challenging to find the ideal fit of the standards in relation to the roles currently undertaken by radiographers at an ACP level.

“We recognise the challenge which exists in developing and enabling the ACP standard to meet the needs of the wider workforce. 

“It is positive to note the addition of ‘defined’ episodes of clinical care and for prescribing to be ‘where it fits’ with the scope of practice. 

“We would be interested to see the correlation of responses received from each profession against the ‘fitness of the standard’ in supporting ACP.”
