- Medical Director, East Midlands Radiology Consortium (EMRAD), and Consultant Neuroradiologist, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

- Interested in contextual and technical leadership, and delivering ambitious quality improvement programmes
- 2016 GenerationQ Fellow
My professional role is as a consultant neuroradiologist working as part of a specialist team at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. I am also the medical director of the EMRAD Acute Care Collaboration Vanguard, a cross-NHS project covering eight NHS Trusts, a population of over 5 million, and over 1.6 billion radiology images in a clinical speciality close to breaking point nationally.
The project has a reliance on IT, an emphasis on cross-Trust collaboration despite traditional desires/drives to compete, and is being delivered in a time of massive service constraints. It is not easy.
The GenerationQ Fellowship has given me access to resources, techniques and skills of leadership and management in a way that is relevant and applicable to my role. The programme of teaching and training, with its emphasis on authenticity in leadership, is simultaneously very supportive and exceedingly challenging.
I recommend it wholeheartedly.
