Clinical radiology: UK workforce census 2017 report

The annual radiologist workforce report highlights the UK’s current and predicted future shortage of imaging doctors and urgently calls for more funding for trainees and better NHS retention and recruitment.

The report shows that 10.3% of UK radiologist jobs were unfilled in 2017. The problem is worse in Northern Ireland where nearly a fifth of posts (18.4 %) were unfilled. More than two-thirds of unfilled posts have been vacant for a year or more.
