Allied Health Professions Workforce Review: Diagnostic Radiography Stakeholder Engagement Event

Get involved

Diagnostic radiographers use x-ray machines, ultrasound machines and other imaging technology and techniques to work out what disease or condition is causing a patient’s illness. We are looking for people who have something to say about the future development and delivery of Diagnostic Radiography.

You may be a professional, worker or volunteer in any sector, or a service user / carer. Either way, we want to hear about your experience of this vital service. This is your chance to help shape future service delivery and have your voice heard by attending the event or submitting written comments.

Project overview

The Department of Health is undertaking a workforce review of the diagnostic radiography profession in Northern Ireland. The aim is to have a workforce of the right size, with the right skills, organised in the right way, delivering services to provide the best possible care for patients and clients within available resources. This process follows co-design and co-production principles. The Project Group is engaging with stakeholders, both in this formal engagement event and through ongoing involvement with relevant individuals and organisations. This input will be invaluable in producing the Project Group's final Report and its recommendations.
