The National Breast Imaging Academy programme is a collaborative, national, multidisciplinary initiative which encompasses a range of solutions to address the severe workforce issues faced in the delivery of breast imaging services across the country. Proposals include the establishment of a national centre of excellence for training, the development of high-quality training programmes for all staff and an innovative, online, technology-enhanced learning hub.

The programme is funded by NHS England, hosted by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and working in collaboration with NHS England & Improvement, the Royal College of Radiologists, the Society and College of Radiographers, the Association of Breast Clinicians, the British Society of Breast Radiology, Breast Cancer Now, and Prevent Breast Cancer.
