Trainee radiologist numbers in Scotland up 75% in only 5 years to meet demand

(c) Fairmount

Thanks to a parliamentary question on Monday, from Monica Lennon: ‘What minimum number of radiologists will be required to meet patient need in the next (a) five and (b) 10 years?’ we can see that radiology trainees have been increased by 30 per year to take the training establishment up by 75% to 179 in 2022.

Earlier reports on radiology staffing showing lack of crisis in Scotland contrary to some media reports:

Radiography staffing vacancies running at ‘healthy’ 5% in Scotland

Contrary to this morning’s Reporting Scareland, Scotland has more than its share of Radiology Consultants

45% more radiologists for NHS Scotland under SNP

‘The Royal College of Radiologists says ‘Scotland is spending more per head’, according to BBC England. BBC Scotland is too busy to report it or has just missed it, allegedly.
