“I’m really excited that we have attained approval for the Level 6 Diagnostic Radiographer integrated degree standard and EPA Plan. This provides the opportunity for employers to influence the development & growth of the Diagnostic Radiographer workforce in England, working in partnership with training providers. My sincere thanks goes to all the trailblazer team who contributed to making this a success, including employers across the NHS & private sector as well as HEI representatives, College of Radiographers, Health Education England & Skills for Health.
