World Radiography Day takes place on 8th November and marks the anniversary of the discovery of x-radiation by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895.

To mark the event, our Radiography team will be sharing information about X-Rays and raising awareness of radiography as a profession by manning an information stand in The Atrium on the 8th from 9-5pm.

Superintendent Radiographer (Education) Rebecca Howell explains:

"It’s an essential role within the hospital; diagnostic imaging plays a huge role in patient care and we work collaboratively with almost every clinical discipline within the trust as part of the patient pathway. Therapeutic radiographers play an essential role in the planning and delivery of radiotherapy. It is important to raise as much awareness for this role as possible. We'll be explaining what radiography is, why we do it, how it impacts on the patient and the hospital to help educate people and raise awareness for the role, hopefully sparking some interest."

There will be education board to look at at the stand as well as members of the Diagnostic Radiology team to provide information. There will also be some of the equipment the team use along with some examples of the types of imaging plus gift bags to give away provided by from the Society of Radiographers.
