Return to Sonography: Our Experience

Sujata Patel, London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust


Information about “Returning to Sonography” is available on the SoR website, (SoR, 2016) and the HCPC has a process for members to re register and return to practice, (HCPC, 2016 ). However, there is a paucity of information from departments that have actually attempted retraining and the outcome of such ventures.

We sought to retrain a Sonographer who had not practised for more than 20 years and wished to return to obstetric scanning. This required us to determine the feasibility, process required and length of time for retraining.
