Scottish patients at risk from radiologist shortage
Scottish patients are experiencing delays to diagnosis and treatment due to a shortage of qualified radiologists, The Royal College of Radiologists has warned. The lack of radiologists specialising in interventional radiology in particular means that only two of the 12 Health Boards in Scotland can currently offer full 24-hour cover for emergency minimally invasive pinhole procedures, such as those to stop bleeding after a road traffic accident or after childbirth.
This two-part workshop is designed for teams of two (a consultant and a doctor in training) from either clinical radiology or clinical oncology to learn and develop QI skills while delivering a key objective for their department.
This document specifies what imaging departments should demand from RIS and PACS vendors to ensure their radiology information technology systems can function in the modren teleradiology environment in a vendor neutral way.
Access to interventional radiology services is necessary to ensure patient safety. This document will help you to ensure you have a safe 24 hour interventional radiology service.
This updated teleradiology guidance sets out the standards for the sharing of imaging data and for outsourcing reporting outside of the local healthcare organisation.
