During 2021/22 Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) supported the Imaging Workforce and Education Group (IWEG) and the National Imaging Programme to develop the Building the NHS Wales Imaging Workforce Model – Strategy for Developing a Radiology Workforce for Wales.
The ‘Strategy for Developing a Radiology Workforce Model for Wales’ is the first output in the process of building the NHS Wales Imaging Workforce Model.
The Strategy sets out several recommendations to support and facilitate the development of a strong, resilient, and sustainable Radiology workforce for the future. These recommendations require both a National and local approach to implementation to ensure that the benefits are realised for both patients and staff.
The National Imaging Programme has committed to overseeing the management and execution of these recommendations via a programme of work, coordinating, and driving the delivery of the recommendations that need to be addressed nationally whilst also supporting Organisations with their local implementation.
