Russell has been a therapeutic radiographer so long he can still remember immobilising patients with sand bags and sticky tape. He qualified and worked in London, before moving to Auckland, and then settling back in the UK in Norfolk. He is now a dosimetrist and a manager and an advanced practitioner and a father of three, so he doesn’t have much spare time. He has an NIHR-funded Master’s in Clinical Research, a published dissertation, and is hoping to one day begin a PhD. He will fit it in somehow. Russell does all this because he loves to see real improvements in radiotherapy practice. Sand bags and sticky tape have gone, but he wants to know what else can we do better? He thinks clinical research is fundamental to answering this question and driving innovations that can benefit both patients and professionals.
