What we do

Professional Medical Illustrators work as part of the healthcare team either as clinical photographers or graphic designers.

Medical Illustration's clients within the Trust are consultant and senior medical staff, senior managers and healthcare professionals. Additionally, Medical Illustration provides an income-generating service for Care Commissioning Groups, private healthcare agencies and solicitors.

All of the department's technical staff are CAMIP-registered Medical Illustration Practitioners and the department was the first such service in the UK to become ISO9001:2008 accredited.
Medical Illustration has three sub-specialties, which are ˜Photography' , ˜Graphics' and 'Clnical Documents'.

Photography and Video

Clinical Photographers take photographs and video recordings of patients' conditions for diagnosis, hospital records, treatment planning, teaching and research. Diagnostic ophthalmic imaging is undertaken at Bradford Royal Infirmary and also in the Macular Unit at St Luke's Hospital. The department also undertakes general photography including scientific and technical photography, PR photography and reprographics.


Graphic Designers develop patient information (in a variety of media) and undertake corporate design and print and the preparation of graphics for teaching and research.

Clinical Documents

The department is responsible for developing and managing the Foundation Trust's printed clinical documents. The service is currently reviewing all existing artwork, numbering and bar-coding documents.
