A notice, circulated by the Croydon PPG network:
Title: Public involvement in a question and answer session at a radiography study day

Values based Practice in radiography is an approach that aims to involve the patient, as well as the professional, in decisions about care.  The Association of Radiography Educators are organising a study day, for radiographers and radiography students, focussing on Values based Practice.   It is important that patients who have received care from radiographers have the opportunity to speak about their experiences and what type of service and care they would like to receive.
