     A particular interest has been training the Thoracic Radiologists of the future and Radiology  training,  being Programme Director and later Head of School for Radiology for the Northern Region from 2003 to 2013.

    Nationally I am involved in both Thoracic Radiology and Radiology training:

    I developed the British Thoracic Society Chest Radiology Course in Newcastle and teach on the Oxford BTS Chest Radiology Course;

    I have been involved at the Royal College of Radiologists for several years on the Speciality Training Board.
