For GPs




Making the best use of clinical radiology services (MBUR) is now iRefer.
New name, new guidelines, new evidence

The latest edition of The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR's) imaging referral guidelines, iRefer is now in its seventh edition:

Why are the guidelines needed?

Why do I have to pay for the guidelines?

The sixth edition of the guidelines was made available to all UK NHS professionals via a licence agreement with the Department of Health. Regretfully this arrangement ended on 30 November 2011 and the seventh edition will therefore not be available to all UK healthcare professionals free of charge.

Discussions are under way with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to provide country-wide access to the guidelines.

The Royal College of Radiologists has endeavoured to keep the prices as low as feasibly possible, given the need to support the development of further editions, and iRefer is available in variety of formats to suit all budgets.
