How Rutherford and Philips can help address the existing radiology workforce crisis

The demand for imaging services in the UK has never been higher. Imaging is being used earlier and more extensively in the diagnostic pathway and is central to a growing number of screening programmes and health checks. 

In this article, Rutherford Diagnostics and Philips discuss the worsening shortage, its manifold reasons and explore how the UK’s planned introduction of CDCs and their partnership could help to address the radiology workforce crisis.  

In line with the NHS Long Term Plan and the Richards’ Report - Diagnostics: Recovery and Renewal, Rutherford is establishing a network of new diagnostic facilities across the UK. Centres will provide diagnostic services to the NHS and to private patients, with each centre providing a variety of services including MRI, CT, Ultrasound, X-Ray and other diagnostic imaging services.
