College review of radiology services, Fourth edition

Date of next review: 

In the years since the Service Review Committee’s inception, some of the reasons for service review have changed and the workings of the committee and its review teams have been adapted. The current revision of this publication defines the agreed indications for service reviews, reflecting the combined experience of the Service Review Committee in modifying the process of review. It will serve to guide review teams, inform trust management of the nature of service that is available and assure Fellows and members that there is a mature process for the investigation of challenged departments. The Service Review Committee has also revised its separate background briefing notes on the processes it follows in conducting a service review: A guide to the process for service reviews conducted by the Service Review Committee.

This document replaces previous College advice given in the College Review of Radiology Services (third edition, 2009), which is now withdrawn.
