New RCR website      
A redesigned RCR website will go live by mid-March.  It will be necessary to "freeze" the site for about a week in advance. You will still be able to view all current content but Case of the Month, Audit Library, AuditLive, the radiology and oncology meetings diaries and the bulletin boards will no longer be able to accept new entries/postings. We apologise for the inconvenience, but hope the additional features on the new site  will compensate for the short period of disruption.
