The Eastern Region Plain Film Reporting Radiographers Special Interest Group was established in July 2012, arising from the expressed need for peer support and recognition of the value of a regional platform to explore shared professional interest in development of current and future practice and professional education. 

A Special Interest Group (SIG) would provide a forum and network support to facilitate professional and educational opportunities specific to the needs and interests of plain film reporting radiographers.
