Tri Service Rads scoop national award.....( Have I Got Old News For You Dept)

It was recognition at last when radiographers from the British Armed Forces picked up the SoR's prestigious title of UK Radiography Team of the Year 2008.

The team collected their award and prize money from guest of honour Karen Middleton, chief health professions office, to huge applause. The team has asked for the prize money, a total of £350, to be donated to the charity Help for Heroes.

Squadron Leader Martin Coleman commented: "The military radiographers are delighted to accept the Society's Team of the Year Award on behalf of all Regular and Reservists, both at home and abroad. It is marvellous to receive recognition for the hard work that the whole military team have put in over the last year.

"I am sure that people are aware that 2008 has been a very busy year for the military, especially out on operational tours, which in turn has increased the workload of support staff back in the UK. Without the strong teamwork and dedication shown by all military radiographers, from junior to senior, this task would have been much more difficult.

"Knowing that what we do is not only recognised by the military, but also by our NHS colleagues and the Society, is a welcome boost to morale. Thank you once again for honouring us with this award."

The team was nominated for the award by SoR member Carrie Kilbey – a senior ultrasonographer at Royal Hospital Haslar. As the military team spans several regions and countries, the nomination was made through the south east region where the majority of Forces’ radiographers are based.

The Radiography Awards are sponsored by Fujifilm. For all the action and details of all the winners, look out for the December edition of Synergy News

Well done you lot - now sort the brews :)

I agree well done, keep shaggin the plain film & CT radiographers why don't you! that award was submitted by a Sonographer not the staff at the coal face! Maybe now Sqn Ldr Coleman has his award he'll move on and let someone with proper leadership take control of the tri forces radiography team. Then maybe we will get some proper praise for the work our Regular & Reserve forces radiographers do for our country!

wow, what a definitive analysis. You are obviously an up and coming - go get 'em type. I will make sure the Sqn ldr is aware of your opinion, did you say in another thread that you were two months off qualifying and looking to join up. I shall look forward to hearing about your interview.

Your 'Sonographer' also happens to be a former RAF Flight Sgt with a full 22 in. Consequently she actually knows of which she speaks. As for the Sqn Ldr, he was also 'at the coal face', in the RAMC, when you were just a dribble down your dad's pants.
What's the motive behind this garbage you're posting? Could it be that you're disappointed you can't join up with a commission?

Until you have any idea what you're talking about, I suggest you go back in your box until you at least qualify.

What do you think us regular radiographers do? Bury our heads in the sand, waiting for a jumped up little prat like you to speak up on our behalf?

A couple of corrections; the sonographer in question retired as a Warrant Officer and the Sqn Ldr (nice to see that one rank was abbreviated correctly) is still green - he just wears a light blue uniform.

But I think that we can all agree that Gado has massive lungs though.
 
#14
deny it!

I can't, but it tends to be the case when you're a fat chick.

Rado, are you the guy that booked himself in with the CO of Blockhouse and asked if he would recruit you as a Radiography Officer?

:D

Did it work?
