  • About

    I qualified as Therapy radiographer in 1987 at the Leicester Schools of Radiography. My first post was at the Queen Elizabeth hospital, Birmingham. Here I was actively involved in producing skin care guidelines for patients. In 1995, I moved to Nottingham City hospital. In 1999 I had the opportunity to start my MSc in Applied Oncology and also to present at a skin conference in Paris. I also took part in the introduction of conformal planning to the prostate and was in charge of treating patients with total body irradiation using both photons and electrons. I also trained and specialised in electronic portal imaging. I was appointed as Treatment Superintendent in 1999. A sideways move in 2001, took me back to the Leicester Royal Infirmary before accepting a Senior lecturer post at Sheffield Hallam University. In 2004, I completed my MSc in Applied Oncology and in March 2005, I was awarded the PGCert in Learning and Teaching. In March 2007, I achieved the status of Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

    Specialist areas of interest

    My interests focus on treatment planning, innovations in imaging and verification, e-learning, new cancer therapies and from an admissions point, widening participation.
