Biography

I am a registered diagnostic radiographer whose career to date has included numerous roles in clinical practice, being a clinical tutor and now a university senior lecturer and programme leader.

Study History

  • Registered Radiographer with the Health and Care Professions Council (registration number RA 20883)
  • Member of the Society and College of Radiographers (membership number 9503)

Professional History

I studied diagnostic radiography at the Bradford School of Radiography gaining the professional qualification of Diploma of the College of Radiographers in Diagnostic Radiography (DCRR). I continue to be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Radiographer and I am a member of the Society and College of Radiographers.

I have 20 years of experience as a clinical radiographer, specialising at various times in general radiography and trauma, theatre and mobile radiography and then more latterly in computed tomography, gaining a post-graduate diploma in medical imaging. During the last four years before joining the University, I was a part-time (0.5) radiography clinical tutor for the Bradford and Airedale College of Health.

After joining the University I soon became involved in developing and being a facilitator for inter-professional education, which continues to be one of my current interests and roles. For a number of years I was the Clinical Education Co-ordinator for the radiography programme which was a natural progression from my previous role as a clinical tutor and was an excellent preparation for becoming the under-graduate programme leader.

In 2006 I wrote and became the programme leader for the BSc (Hons) Medical Imaging. This was a collaborative venture with the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Lahore, Pakistan, which was founded by the then Chancellor of the University of Bradford, Imran Khan. Being able to spend time in Lahore on several occasions was professionally and personally an amazing experience.

Professional Activities

I have been the Chair of the Faculty of Health Studies Curriculum Development Group (December 2014 to July 2015) and member of the School of Health Studies Course Approval and Review Team (SCART) and member of the University of Bradford Course Approval and Review Team (CART).

I am a member of School of Health Studies Extenuating Circumstances Sub-Committee and was acting Chair from December 2014 to August 2015.

I am currently external examiner at the University of Portsmouth for the BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography and BSc (Hons) Therapeutic Radiography programmes.

I have just successfully completed the University ‘Bradford:Leaders’ programme (level 2, cohort 02). Our Strategic Impact Group (SIG) presented the findings of our research project ‘Positive Bradford’ to senior University staff on 23 May 2016.

Research Areas

My scholarly interest is in the area of equality and diversity, particularly in radiography and higher education.

I am currently studying for an MSc Diversity Management and I am developing a qualitative phenomenological research project on the subject of engagement of male under-graduate students.

Public/Academic/Stakeholder Engagement

Member of the NHS Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber Regional Imaging Leads Group, which is a forum for the three providers of radiography education in Yorkshire, clinical managers and health education commissioning leads to discuss and take action on current issues.

Recent initiatives have been designing a single clinical assessment tool which is now used to assess radiography students in clinical practice across Yorkshire and much of the North of England and the 3 Plus 1 post-graduate study initiative.
