University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.
I work in Radiation Protection, and I'm particularly involved in diagnostic and interventional radiology equipment quality control and testing, management of radioactive waste and legislation compliance. I also have an interest in data analysis and statistics and database writing and management. I'm currently on maternity leave, so our five month old son, James, is my ongoing project!
I use many online resources such as the PHE website. As I do a lot of quality assurance, the IPEM reports are also invaluable books.
SRP's Journal of Radiological Protection is really useful. I also receive the Medical Physics JISCMAIL, which keeps me up to date with lots of topical issues.
I most enjoy the variety – of both situations and people – which I encounter on a daily basis. I get to meet staff from lots of different areas within the hospital, and respond to queries regarding anything from equipment problems to radioactive toilets!
Yellow, informative, inclusive.
Implementation of BSS in the Medical Sector – Join the Debate! was a particularly interesting event, as there was still a lot of uncertainty surrounding the new regulations, and this prompted a lot of interesting debate and discussion.

A cup of tea, something funny on the radio, cake at work!
Steak with salsa verde.
Boris Johnson, I really want him to explain why Brexit is a good idea.
Couch to 5k – it gets me out of the house!
After being told a friend had a twin brother, I asked her if they were identical – being a twin myself I should have known that was a very silly question!

Iceland, to see the Northern Lights.
