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 NBIA is funded by Health Education 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.

The NBIA team is also working to raise the profile of a career in breast imaging and to promote excellence across all aspects of the specialty.
