Radiology is a key diagnostic and interventional service for the NHS. Radiology supports patients across the full range of specialties in acute hospitals and makes a significant contribution in providing diagnostics to primary care and community services. The Radiology project reviews modalities, equipment and infrastructure, activity, access and waiting, reporting times, finance, staffing, productivity, quality and outcomes.

Latest good practice includes advice on:

  • Radiographer led reporting and extended practice
  • Rapid reporting of results
  • Specialist interventions
  • Productivity enhancements
  • Outcomes improvement
  • Patient and GP customer focus initiatives
  • Demand management initiatives

This project is for all providers of Radiology Services. Subscribing members will receive:

  • Access to a benchmarking toolkit, allowing you to benchmark your service across hundreds of metrics
  • A bespoke dashboard report outlining key messages and metrics, which compares your local position against nationally reported positions
  • A high-level report outlining key messages and metrics for radiology services nationally
  • Good practice compendium of information supplied by members describing the innovative practice they are undertaking in this area.
  • Attendance at the Radiology event, where the initial findings from the project will be presented, as well as good practice and national speakers
