Patient Advisory Group

About Us

Patients are central to the work of radiographers so it is important that the SCoR works with both patients and the public to ensure the service we provide meets their needs.

The Patient and Public Liaison Group (PPLG) was set up in 2007 to give patients and the public the opportunity to influence the work of the SCoR and ensure their views are represented. It was renamed the Patient Advisory Group (PAG) in 2018 following recognition of the important contribution patients and the public make to the work of the SCoR. 

What do we do?

The group provides opinions, input and support to various aspects of the SCoR’s work, including its publications, consultation responses and strategy.

It also contributes to some working groups and boards that are part of internal structure of the SCoR and to those of external organisations on which the SCoR has representation.

Tell me more…

There are currently six lay members of the PAG, who are supported in their activity by SCoR staff. Click here to find out more about who they are and why they joined. Membership is open to anyone. Members are recruited via national advertisements, but enquiries are welcome at any time. The group meets twice to three times a year and also communicates electronically between meetings. All expenses for travel to meetings are met by the SCoR.

You do not need any particular qualifications. We welcome people from all backgrounds and from anywhere within the Unitied Kingdom. All we ask is that you bring your voice and share your views with us. 

How can I join?

To find out more about the PAG and how to join, please email Liz Robinson. We can't wait to hear from you.

Radiographers: Why it is important to encourage your patients to take part?

We need our patients to share their experiences and views to enable us to learn about services and develop our practice. 

As the healthcare landscape and structure changes to become more focused on patients and empowering them to share in decision making (‘No decision about me, without me’), it is important that patients are involved in all aspects of the healthcare service, which includes the work, policy and strategy of the professional bodies.

If you have a patient who would be a valuable member of the PAG and who you feel would benefit the group with their views and experience, why not encourage them to apply to join?

Further information about this group and how patients can join is available by emailing Liz Robinson.
