This page provides information for educators and diagnostic radiography students around raising concerns and commending excellence within the Diagnostic Radiography Programme.

The school encourages feedback on the behaviour of individual students to identify concerns or areas of excellence. This can enable us to either provide remediation to help get the student back on track or to inform the student that their excellent behaviour has been noted. 

We have classified the concern as an On the spot professionalism concern – this relates to behaviours well below the expected standard and include repeated absences or lateness, inappropriate communications and inappropriate behaviours including untruthfulness.
