Coventry University is aiming to help address the NHS’s shortage of radiographers in the United Kingdom with the launch of new diagnostic radiography degree courses offering students a unique route into the profession. Research indicates that nine in 10 hospital patients will require radiography, yet the UK is facing a shortage of numbers in this vital profession with more than half of radiology leaders saying they need more diagnostic radiographers to keep patients safe.
