About me

I am Head of the Department of Allied Health Professions in the Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences. This Department offers a diverse range of programmes, including Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Paramedic Science, Diagnostic Imaging, Radiotherapy & Oncology, Medical Ultrasound, Sport Rehabilitation, Nuclear Medicine, Optometry and Physician Associate Studies.  

Area of expertise

I originally qualified as a Radiographer, and went on to specialise in Medical Ultrasound. I worked for many years in clinical practice before moving into education, and still manage to retain my clinical skills by continuing to scan. 

I am a committee member of the Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education (CASE), a role which involves advising and approving UK Ultrasound programmes to confirm they meet minimum standards for training the sonography workforce.

I am a member of the Fitness to Practise Panel for the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC). This involves reviewing the conduct of registrant members to determine their suitability for the role of an Allied Health Professional.

I am currently Vice President for Education and Research for the annual UK Radiological Congress.
