Clinical attachments

Clinical attachments take place in King’s Breast Radiology Department. They are not training courses but are aimed at health professionals who want to learn more about the latest practices in breast radiology. They are open to UK and overseas applicants and placements may be limited to a maximum of two weeks, depending on capacity.

As there are strict candidate requirements, requests for attachments must be made as far in advance as possible to enable all procedures to be completed before the start date.

Contact our Training Centre for more information.

Mammography Clinical Update Training

Mammographers can choose for their update to be delivered either remotely (distance learning), or face-to-face during a hands-on, one-day placement at King’s College Hospital. The remote version is delivered in stages, removing the need for mammographers to take significant time out of their daily duties or for clinics to be cancelled to accommodate the update. Our clinical update programme is endorsed by the College of Radiographers.

Contact our Training Centre for more information.


Remote version – £150 per mammographer.
Face-to-face version at King’s – £285 per mammographer.

Breast Radiology Upskilling Programmes

We run two programmes, both aimed at increasing the number of breast radiologists within the NHS. One programme is for symptomatic breast radiologists who would like to upskill to include breast screening assessment work. The other programme is for general radiologists wishing to upskill into breast symptomatic work. These programmes are only open to UK applicants who work within the NHS.
