 Pg (Dip) Medical Ultrasound, BSc (Hon) Diagnostic Radiography

(English, Spanish, Arabic Armenian and French speaker)

I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Diagnostic Radiography and Imaging from the University of Hertfordshire in 2003 after which I was employed at the East and North Herts NHS Trust. I commenced my Ultrasound training the following year and obtained my post-graduate Diploma in summer of 2006 from South Bank University. The following 4 years at the East and North Herts Trust were invaluable for me to consolidate my ultrasound experience. During those years I became proficient at obstetric, gynaecological, abdominal, testicular and vascular ultrasound.
After the East and North Herts Trust,  I spent one year working at Northwick Park Hospital which provided me with valuable further experience in obstetric ultrasound as they have a very busy maternity unit.

Specialities:

From December 2012 until April 2020, I was employed at Imperial College NHS Trust (St Mary’s hospital). The years at this Trust hugely increased my experience in other fields of ultrasound such as musculoskeletal ultrasound, lumps & bumps, hernias and 3D assessment of the uterus for patients with a history of recurrent miscarriages. In April 2014, I was promoted to ultrasound modality lead which involved overseeing the management of well over 20,000 scans per year. The role involved recruitment and training of sonographers, managing a team of thirteen sonographers and assistants, and liaising closely with consultant radiologists in order to gain more skills and improve the overall ultrasound service.

In July 2020 I changed employer joining the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. My new exciting role involves co-managing the largest team of sonographers in the UK that work across multiple sites. This prestigious Foundation Trust has provided the opportunity to not only continue my management role but also further develop my clinical ultrasound role within the field of musculoskeletal ultrasound.
