Each of the 11 regions in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland & Wales have their own regional committees. Students are welcome to join the committees and get actively involved with the issues affecting their regions.
There is usually a Regional and National Student Officer for each region who plays a positive and progressive role by developing communication and feedback between students, their university, and the Society and College of Radiographers. It’s the student officers who encourage other students to make their views known to them, which they can then take to the committee and receive responses and feedback. They are also there to give help and advice, or to find out where other students should go to obtain information or support.
Student officers can help you access the Society and College of Radiographers student services and provide support and guidance on a range of issues. They can liaise with other representatives at regional and national level, participating in the decision-making processes of the organisation which impact the profession.
Student officers are a valuable source of help and support for students, so please ensure you know who your regional/national officer is and make contact with them.
Are you interested in becoming a Student Officer or joining your regional committee? If so why not contact your regional/national officer to find out more.

Each year at the Annual Delegates Conference, students from the different regions are nominated to become Student Observers to Council.The elected student observers attend UK Council meetings to participate in the discussions and put forward the student perspective and voice and contribute to debates and influence decisions.
The Society has permanent paid staff to carry out the instructions of Council and its members. Many of the staff are specialists in their respective fields. Many work at the London headquarters but some are permanently based at locations throughout the UK, principally to serve a regional or national (eg, Scotland/Wales) function.
