NEW! The BMUS Preceptorship Endorsement Scheme

15th Sep 2023

Departmental managers and ultrasound leads: Help support, develop and retain your valuable staff through the new BMUS Preceptorship Endorsement Scheme.

This simple scheme is designed to recognise ultrasound departments that offer a supportive environment for ultrasound practitioners of all grades and experience. It provides departments with a useful checklist of essential and desirable criteria associated with equitable staff management and aligned with best practice. It also helps ultrasound leads identify how well they are supporting staff and highlights areas where they may be able to improve.

Securing BMUS endorsement may assist departments preparing for Care Quality Commission inspections or in preparing applications for accreditation such as The Quality Standard for Imaging accreditation. On meeting the criteria for endorsement, departments will receive a formal certificate and digital badge that can be added to company e-mail signatures, letterheads, web pages and social media posts.

The following Ultrasound Departments so far have gained the BMUS Certificate of Endorsement:

•    Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust
•    The James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust 
•    Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust
