In 2008 Skills for Health funded the Institute for Employment Studies, in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire, to undertake a survey of training for extended role activities undertaken by radiographers.

Drawing on the findings from a survey posted to managers of imaging departments, the report explores:

  • the extent and nature of training and development provided across the UK for ‘extended role’ activities undertaken by diagnostic radiographers and the extent to which provision is mapped against external standards and/or accredited by external bodies
  • hospital policies relating to the recruitment of individuals with accredited and non-accredited training for extended role activities.
