Call for evidence - ultrasound workforce survey extended

Doctor looking at ultrasounds

24 / 7 / 2015 Midnight

Health Education England has extended their call for information to help investigate and identify the extent of shortages in the ultrasound workforce. Organisations now have until Friday 31 July to submit their information.

The survey has been developed by the Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI) to be completed by services or departments who perform ultrasound either as a direct service or as a tool within another service.

It should ideally be completed by the department lead along with HR or the workforce planning lead.

What this means for employers

By encouraging departments and leads to complete the survey, you will help ensure that the NHS has the right number of trained staff available to deliver both current and future ultrasound services.

Information required

Information is required for all staff groups who are involved in ultrasound service provision, not just sonographers. Departments are asked to provide numbers and levels of full-time equivalent (FTE) posts, including individuals in training, vacant or frozen posts, temporary/agency staff and any expected retirements.

You can find out more information in this guidance. Please ignore the earlier stated closing date.

Completing the survey

The survey is available to complete online until Friday 31 July 2015.
