The UK echocardiography workforce (2023)

The British Society of Echocardiography commissioned Professor Alison Leary, Chair of Workforce Modelling at London South Bank University, to carry out a further investigation into the challenges and opportunities being faced by the echo workforce in 2022. Professor Leary ran a workshop with broad representation in terms of geography, experience and clinical setting. The results of the workshop fed into a survey which set out to better understand issues such as working conditions, opportunities for workload redistribution and demand for labour.

Having compiled the data and working with the Workforce Committee, Professor Leary proposed that the best way she could assist our workforce was to write a policy paper outlining the issues and making specific recommendations to address them.
