UHNM clinician scoops Radiographer of the year
A clinician from University Hospitals of North Midlands has been awarded ‘Midlands Region Radiographer of the Year’ at the Radiographer Awards 2022.
Chris Marsh, Advanced Clinical Practitioner for Radiology, was nominated by Gastrointestinal Radiologist Dr Ingrid Britton and Advance Practice Radiographer Cathryn Bradbury for his understated confidence, shining competence and for putting all patients, students and staff at ease in teaching, service or crisis.
The nomination also highlighted Chris being a key figure of the first phase of a national rollout, delivering training to radiographers and now radiologists across the Midlands as part of a £150,000 grant to UHNM Radiology from Health Education England.
Chris also responded to the Covid-19 crisis within endoscopy nationally and led a team, training 46 radiographers and four radiologists in CT Colonography, over the last two years, from all over the Midlands.
Chris said: “It’s a privilege and I'm eternally grateful for the nomination for Midlands Regional Radiographer of the Year from my colleagues. The award for me is an opportunity to champion radiographers and to highlight the pivotal role we have in patient care. I’m looking forward to attending the official awards ceremony and honoured to have been put through to the national awards in March.”
The Radiographer Awards celebrate individuals, teams and students from across the UK who have made a positive difference to patient care, service delivery or excelled academically. Chris will be presented with the regional award early next year and the nomination will now be put forward to be judged for the overall UK award.
