“Hello, good evening and welcome” (to quote the late, great Sir David Frost) …to the second feature week on radiographerben.
It has been – for those of you that hadn’t already noticed – #SoRWEEK. Last week, for the first time, I decided to have a feature week, and kicked it all off with #NHSWEEK. The idea of a theme to base my tweeting around was, or at least, appeared to me, to be fairly well-received, and so I decided to go straight into another feature week…lucky you!
I decided to choose my own professional body, and to base this last week’s tweets around the work of the Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR). I could have tweeted many more times than I did, however, I didn’t want to go overboard (whether I succeeded or failed in this, please let me know!) I wanted to get across what the SCoR does and the varied work and research that it is involved in. I hope I also succeeded in this aim!?
Here for your delectation – and future use (hopefully!) is the complete list of the week that was #SoRWEEK:

Now then, I could write a piece about each tweet, but that would make for an exceptionally long blog, and as I hope you’d know by now, that’s not my thing! Having said that, this is the longest to date I believe! However, I hope you will find it a useful resource. I also hope that you have enjoyed this last week as much as I have. It’s been great to shine a light on the work that my professional body is involved in, and to help educate people as to what it is we radiographers do!
I would really appreciate any feedback (for those of you that have made it to the end of this blog and are actually reading this bit!) as one of the main things I have enjoyed the most this week has been the interaction with my followers and fellow healthcare professionals. It’s great that we can use social media to connect with people all over the world and use it to share our experiences and knowledge. I truly believe it is a tool that we as radiographers, and other healthcare professionals, can use to enhance not only the knowledge of our own subject, but also to educate the wider public as to the work we do.
Thanks again to all those who have made the effort to get this far, and to those of you that helped make this last week, the most successful week on social media since I “created” radiographerben last year!
Please keep following and interacting with me…it’s the best bit!
