Radiology reporting figures for service planning: New guidance document

Thursday 24 November 2022

The RCR is pleased to announce the publication of the guidance Radiology reporting figures for service planning

As demand for imaging grows year on year services are under increased pressure to ensure sufficient reporting capacity within their departments. Crucial to this is the need for guidance and tools to assist services with resource planning and to establish methods for calculating service capacity. By publishing this guidance, the RCR aims to support services by exploring the factors which can affect reporting  capacity and by providing two models of  calculating reporting capacity which can be adapted by departments depending on their requirements. 

The focus of this guidance is solely on  departmental  planning rather than the individuals and it should not be used for individual performance management or medico-legally. 

The RCR would like to thank the working party, in particular Dr James Thomas and all those who contributed to the development of the guidance through the consultation feedback process.

The RCR will be holding a webinar on the guidance on Thursday 2 February 2023 from 5:30 – 6:30:
