Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (IR(ME)R) Annual Report 2016-17

This report summarises our findings from our inspections of radiology departments during 2016-17.

We are responsible for monitoring compliance against the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (IR(ME)R) 2000. The regulations are intended to protect patients from hazards associated with ionising radiation.

This report brings together our findings across NHS radiotherapy, radiology and nuclear medicine departments and NHS and private dental practices in Wales. It aims to identify common strengths and areas for improvement, and makes recommendations for organisations providing relevant services. It also highlights good practice to support improvement in the services provided to patients.
