Phil completed the three-year Diploma of the College of Radiography at Greenwich in London in 1988.

He has worked in six different hospitals throughout a clinical career which has had several highlights. These include working alongside Sir Godfrey Hounsfield for a day, being one of the first Radiographers to generate a 'digital' CXR, and helping to launch cardiac angiography services in Middlesbrough.

Phil has been a member of the university since 1992 - working on the very first radiography degree course. He has also been a post graduate student here, gaining fellowship of the HEA and doctorate.

He was recognized as national 'learning technologist of the year, 2007' by the Association for Learning Technology for his work in computer simulation in education.

Phil is was the elected representative of northern region radiography professionals on the national council of the Society of Radiographers 2014-2019. He holds a company directorship and was co-founder of shaderware ltd, a radiography training simulation developer.

He holds membership of the Health & Care Professions Council, Anatomy Society, Society and College of Radiographers, and British Institute of Radiology.
