UK NHS on target with diagnostic imaging radiographer recruitment drive:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK's Department of Health has announced that it is meeting its targets for the recruitment of radiographers, as believed necessary to optimise the use of X-ray services. More than 1,400 radiographers have been taken on by the NHS since 2003, the government claims. Stronger staffing of diagnostic imaging services, combined with the increased efficiencies promised from extending the use of picture archiving and communications (PACS), are being billed as key elements of the drive to cut diagnostic waits and meet the 18-week referral-to-treatment target.
