Diagnostic radiographers - MAC inclusion report September 2009

Imaging services provide support to a wide range of care areas and there has been a year-on- year growth in imaging referrals leading to increasing demand in the diagnostic radiographer workforce. Improving recruitment to training courses, reducing in-course attrition and establishing the four-tier career pathway will improve the supply situation in the medium to long term. However, in the short to medium term the use of overseas recruitment is a sensible mechanism for alleviating shortages within the profession. Overseas recruits have to be registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC) to work in the UK.
