Radiography

Volume 465: debated on Wednesday 24 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) radiographers are employed by each NHS trust; what change each figure represents on the previous year; and what plans he has to improve the retention of MRI radiographers. (157366)

We cannot isolate the number of magnetic resonance imaging radiographers from the census data. The number of all qualified diagnostic radiographers by each national health service trust and the change from the previous year is shown in the following table.

A range of recruitment, retention and returner initiatives are already place as a result of meeting the challenging work force targets set out in the ‘NHS Plan’ and ‘Delivering the NHS Plan’. The NHS is striving to be an employer of choice and is developing and implementing modern recruitment practices.

NHS hospital and community services: Qualified diagnostic radiography staff in England by strategic health authority area and by organisation as at 30 September each specified year

1 More accurate validation in 2006 has resulted in 9,858 duplicate records being identified and removed from the non-medical census. Although this represents less than 1 per cent. of total records, it should be taken into consideration when making historical comparisons. Consequently, the change, and percentage changes, shown above have been estimated to take into account these duplicates, so that comparisons of 2006 with earlier years' are valid.
