The British Institute of Radiology (BIR) conducted two surveys of imaging and oncology professionals spaced approximately a month apart. The first was between 29 April and 1 May 2020, completed by 561 UK based radiographers, 81 sonographers, 65 radiologists, 11 scientists working in healthcare and 6 oncologists. The second survey was between 27 May and 1 June 2020 and was completed by 261 UK based radiographers, 30 sonographers, 80 radiologists, 13 scientists working in healthcare and 6 oncologists.
The results showed some improvement: In the second survey, a higher proportion of each of the professional groups believed there was adequate provision of COVID-19 PPE, testing, cleaning supplies and cleaning staff. There was also more optimism about future provision.
