The Development of the Nuclear Medicine Workforce – Have your say

In response to ongoing developments impacting on Nuclear Medicine service across the UK, the Society and College of Radiographers in conjunction with the University of the West of England, Bristol, are looking to develop a new professional practice document aimed at supporting the Nuclear Medicine Workforce
It is hoped that this document will not only provide a basis on which the future training and development needs of the Nuclear Medicine workforce can be built, but will also provide the opportunity to further define the role of the Nuclear Medicine Practitioner in relation to current government drivers associated with ‘competency based practice’ and ‘patient centred care’.
