Andy Pitt

Andy PittPositions in the SCoR
UK Council Member for the north west region: 1998 - 2009
Past President: 2006 - 2007
Member of the College Board of Trustees: 2004 - 2009

Place of Work: Diagnostic X-ray, Christie Hospital, Manchester
Job title: Senior I radiographer with advanced practice in GI and key radiographer in interventional services

As one of the founder members of the North West Regional Executive, I have always fully supported this active and successful committee and as its UK Council member from its conception until July 2009, I strived to fully represent the region and profession at national level.

Now as the third Chair for the north west region, I will endeavour to maintain the established high standards already set by my predecessors and ensure that the executive committee continues to function at its fullest potential.

We as a committee have a good working relationship and we have gained an excellent reputation for organising our very successful annual study events. There is also a good level of communication between the various associated committees and in seeking our members' views across the breadth of the profession to ensure full membership representation in any decision making.

As Chair, my aim now is to ensure that the committee considers the aims and objectives as set out in the SoR three-year strategy plan, as determined by UK Council and, where possible, to incorporate them at a regional level.

Peter Nimmo

Peter NimmoSpeciality: Quality assurance/ CT/ GDB

I have been qualified for 30+ years and seen many changes, not just in radiography but also in the health services. I have been a member of the Society of Radiographers for a similar number of years. I qualified as a diagnostic radiographer in Liverpool and then moved to Kings Lynn for a number of years before moving to Leighton Hospital, Crewe.

I have been an industrial relations rep for about 15 years and still try to keep up-to-date with all IR news. I am at present a health and safety rep and have been for ten years, plus I have also taken on the role of the Agenda for Change rep and achieved some success at Leighton to get most staff onto the correct grading as predicted before management started changing job roles to reduce the grades. As a radiographer, I keep up with current trends and still keep up my on-call and stand-by commitments.

Ken Holmes

Ken HolmesSpeciality: Education

Born in Birmingham, qualified in radiography in 1976 at Dudley Road (now City Hospital NHS Trust) and RNI in 1989. I then led the RNI course before developing an MSc course at Bristol. I am still a validator for CANME and an external examiner for nuclear medicine. I was the programme leader for MSc at UWE where I developed and led the delivery of the first 'reporting in nuclear medicine' module by non-medical practitioners in 1999.

My current post is as a senior lecturer at University of Cumbria and my role is clinical coordinator. My studies include competency to report and reflections from the students on the process. I was a keen rugby player in my youth and now I am an avid watcher. My other hobbies include wine making and walking.
