Course overview

There will be an introductory on-line lecture to support interactive learning within the session. The content of the session will include:

  • Overview of current guidance on how to structure a report
  • Examples of good practice and poor practice
  • Hands-on practical report writing, with feedback from tutors
  • Question and answer session
  • Quote image

    I found the ultrasound report writing course presented by Gill and Alison very informative and interactive. As a locum sonographer I would have found this extremely helpful when I started writing reports 5 years ago. Even today it has been extremely useful.

Course outcomes

Course outcomes

You will learn how to structure an ultrasound report that meets the current UK standards for ultrasound practice. There will be an opportunity to review good and poor quality reports, critique these in relation to the current guidelines and practice writing clear, concise and relevant reports.



Prerequisite knowledge

Sonographers wanting to develop their skills and practice of report writing to UK standards.

English requirements

English language at a level eligible to work in the UK.



A blended learning approach will be used. To make the most of the face-to-face time an on-line lecture will be provided to give the background information about report writing and best practice.

You will be encouraged to bring an example of two or three reports from your own workplace, if applicable, to discuss during the session.

This is an attendance based event.

If you meet the entry requirements for the postgraduate programme and wanted to gain 15 M-level credits, you could undertake a work based or student negotiated distance learning module and develop your experience and skills further.
