Consultant Radiographer
NHS Scotland

Interest in Oral Care:
Came from my current role as Consultant radiographer in head and Neck Oncology at one of the UK’s largest cancer centres. I have participated in several clinical trials two of which I have been Principle Investigator. I am part of a large Clinical Network treating around 500 patients a year for radiotherapy. I also have a special interest in supporting patients after the completion of treatment helping them managing and understand the consequences of treatment.

I am part of both national and international groups looking at improving knowledge of oral care through education programmes for both patients and healthcare workers.
