Clinical Oncology UK Workforce Report 2012


In 2008, The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) carried out its first online census of all clinical oncology departments across the UK. This was an important piece of work as it gave us for the first time accurate data on the composition of the UK workforce in clinical oncology. Since then, the census has been conducted annually and this, the report of the 2012 results, includes data on the clinical (and medical) oncology workforce across the UK.

The data derived is being used to inform workforce planning and will be shared with the Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI) and others with a legitimate interest in medical workforce planning. It will continue to allow analysis of trends such as gender patterns and part-time working as well as identifying variations in the oncology workforce nationally and locally.
