Radiographer returns to his roots

A radiographer who was raised and educated in Plymouth has returned to his home city to join the busy radiology team at Practice Plus Group Hospital Plymouth (formerly Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre).

Jack Fordham-Smith achieved a BTEC level 3 in forensic science at City College Plymouth before studying for a degree in diagnostic radiography at St George’s University, London. Around half of his degree was spent in clinical placements in and around London and short term specialist placements in hospitals such as Great Ormond Street.

In his current role he maintains an up-to-date theatre list for the department, teaches and mentors students from the University of Plymouth on placement and is health and safety lead for the department. He said: “I am delighted to be back in my home town, working at an outstanding hospital and providing diagnostic services to the people of Plymouth and beyond.”

Radiology manager Vanessa Squibb added: “We are very pleased to welcome Jack to our team of three radiographers. We support our colleagues in this hospital and local NHS trusts with high quality diagnostic imaging services.”
