About Worldwide Radiology (WWR)

We are medical experts applying our skills and knowledge to make a difference in the world. We bring together the global community of medical imaging professionals to make the case for diagnostic imaging.

 

Since 2017, Worldwide Radiology has been steadily growing from a small group of founding UK radiologists with experience of working in limited resource settings to an international team of around 50 long-term volunteers from a range of different imaging and clinical backgrounds.

 

We support the development of appropriate, high quality imaging services in low and middle income countries; from central teaching hospitals to remote district clinics. We work together with our partners to build the necessary skills and capacity to improve patient care and we aim to increase opportunities for imaging research focused on local or national healthcare priorities.


At Worldwide Radiology, we operate as a tight-knit team committed to flexibility, collaboration, and work-life balance. As a small charity, we value adaptability and a collective approach, often requiring individuals to contribute beyond their defined roles. We believe in a culture of mutual support, where everyone pitches in where needed, picking up various tasks as we go.
