A radiographer who made the career change from technical manager at a road building and construction materials business to radiology, has become radiology manager at Practice Plus Group Hospital Shepton Mallet (formerly Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre).
James Mico joined the hospital from Taunton Nuffield Hospital where he was interim imaging manager.
While working at construction materials company Tarmac, Mico decided to pursue his dream of working in a medical environment. He said: “I always wanted to work in the medical field. I undertook some work experience and enjoyed radiography so decided to train in that discipline.”
Mico gained a degree in diagnostic imaging at the University of the West of England before taking up his first position as a radiographer at Frenchay Hospital in Bristol in 2012. Since then he has worked in NHS and private hospitals in Bristol, Gloucestershire and Somerset.
