Clinical radiology job planning guidance for consultant and SAS doctors 2022

Date of next review: 

Workforce pressures in clinical radiology (CR) have continued to grow, with more clinical radiologists retiring early or working less than full-time (LTFT), and the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the workplace forever. In this context, the job planning process is more important than ever to ensure hospitals support a workforce that is able to deliver the excellent clinical care to which we all aspire. This document aims to provide clear direction on how radiologists should aim to work in a supportive environment.

It is hoped that this document will provide clear advice for every consultant and specialty and associate specialist (SAS) doctor as they have their annual job plan meeting, for service leads leading the job planning process and for hospitals to ensure CR job plans are well supported and appropriately funded.
