Professional Lead for Diagnostic Radiography in the School of Health Sciences, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, UK. Formerly Principal Lecturer at London South Bank University and diagnostic radiographer at Dundee Royal Infirmary.

I work in a multi-disciplinary environment alongside a range of allied health professional groups including Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Nursing. I am responsible for the management and development of radiography provision within the School which includes our business interaction strategy, through which we operate an X-ray facility providing imaging services to external organisations. I also participate in cross School activities related to inter-professional education opportunities.

I have extensive curriculum development experience and over 20 years have developed or contributed to the development of programmes at postgraduate, undergraduate and foundation level. I have also managed programmes at these levels and been an external examiner on a range of courses in the UK. On behalf of the UK College of Radiographers I have been involved in approval processes for radiography courses in a number of other countries, including Malaysia, Dubai and Pakistan. Between 2008 and 2010 I participated in development of the European Masters Programme in Medical Imaging (EMPIMI).

From 2000 to 2010 I sat on the UK Society and College of Radiographers Council, serving as its President in 2002-3. I Chaired the College’s approvals and accreditation board until 2011, and currently sit on the College Board of Trustees. I also act as an assessor for the College and undertake course approvals on its behalf. In 2007 I co-chaired the joint College of Radiographers and Royal College of Radiologists, joint review of guidance on radiographic skill mix titled ‘Team Working in Departments of Clinical Radiology’ and I am a reviewer for the journal Radiography.


My research interests are mainly in radiographic workforce development, including the support workforce, advanced and consultant practice. I am currently involved in a project examining the scope and implementation of advanced practice of radiographers in Scotland.
