Radiographer Reporting (PgCert)

Course Description

Radiographer Reporting is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding career progression roles to have developed for Diagnostic Radiographers in recent years.

It not only offers exciting and challenging professional development opportunities to the individual but evidence based quality and economic benefits to the employer.

Following the Spending Review of 2010, the Department of Health in England and Wales stressed the need to encourage the NHS to train radiographers to report in line with best practice. Within Scotland, the importance of developing a robust Radiographer Reporting resource is reinforced in the 2012 AHP National Delivery Plan.
