About

Background

Richard is a therapeutic radiography lecturer who joined City University in 2004. He previously worked at Charterhouse College of Radiography and St Bartholomew's Hospital Radiotherapy Department.

Richard initially worked as a therapeutic radiographer at St. Bartholomew's Hospital. After becoming a senior radiographer he took the position as clinical tutor at The Middlesex Hospital Radiotherapy department. He then continued teaching with Charterhouse College of Radiography when it was formed in 1994 taking on the role of clinical coordinator during this time. When the College became part of City University London in 2004 he continued as one of the key members of the radiotherapy teaching team and became pre-registration radiotherapy programme director in 2009. Over this time he has developed a keen interest in e-learning and was instrumental in developing the successful blended learning approach used with the programmes today.
