Advanced practitioner Michael Fell.
The Society of Radiographers has launched a new professional development scheme and a Milton Keynes radiographer has scooped the first ever accreditation.
Michael Fell, an advanced practitioner in trauma reporting at Milton Keynes Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, had to meet nationally agreed standards, compile a portfolio of evidence and get his submission backed by other radiographers.
On his accreditation, Michael said: “The scheme basically involves compiling and entering evidence that supports your levels of practice. One of the major benefits is that it encourages you to reflect upon your personal learning and development. You are able to see whether there are any areas that need extra work and then put that into practice.”
