Deadline to complete UK diagnostic radiography workforce census fast approaching

Opportunity to influence policy-makers should not be missed

Published: 02 December 2021 Surveys

Radiography department managers are being urged to complete the College of Radiographers’ 2021 diagnostic radiography workforce census, to provide crucial information vital to the future of the profession.

With the deadline for completed online forms fast approaching, the College is keen to get as much data as possible as the results will inform the work of professional bodies, workforce planners and commissioners/providers of radiography education.

Accurate and up-to-date information on the radiographic workforce 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.
